Returning to Her Roots, Lara Spencer Joins ‘GMA’

Lara Spencer is returning to her roots. The former WABC reporter and one-time “Good Morning America” correspondent is joining “GMA” as a “lifestyle anchor.”

In an email to staff, ABC News president Ben Sherwood announced that Spencer was coming home.
