Faris to co-anchor weekend ‘Good Morning America’

 

Former WMAQ-Channel 5 sports reporter Paula Faris just got a nice promotion in New York. The broadcaster has been tapped to join the anchor team on “Good Morning America’s” weekend shows — as Bianna Golodryga leaves ABC News to join Yahoo.

Faris will debut on GMA on Saturday, Aug. 8, coming off her regular, daily reports for the network from the World Cup in Brazil. Faris will be joining fellow anchor desk teammates Dan Harris, Ron Claiborne, Sara Haines and the soon-to-join Rob Marciano.

While Golodryga departs ABC after seven years to become a news and finance anchor at Yahoo, she will continue to appear on ABC occasionally, due to the two news organizations’ partnership.
