ABC to Debut ‘Good Afternoon America’ July 9th

ABC today made official what was reported several weeks ago: the new extension of “Good Morning America” will debut on July 9th and run for nine weeks on most ABC stations.

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.”
