T.J. Holmes-Amy Robach ‘gross’ podcast announcement brings back bad memories after scandal: former ABC insider

Former ABC News hosts and “Instagram official” romantic couple T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach are launching a podcast where “nothing is off limits,” and one former ABC insider is calling the spectacle “gross.”

Holmes and Robach posted a smiling photo of themselves on Wednesday, embracing with the caption “How’s this for Instagram official? #silentnomore.” The affectionate photo promotes their new weekly iHeartMedia podcast titled “Amy & T.J.” that launches next month.

Their relationship, which began while they were married to other people, came to light late last year and resulted in them being benched for two months from “GMA3,” the dayside ABC show they co-hosted from 2020 to 2022. Insiders told Fox News Digital as the saga was ongoing at the end of 2022 and into 2023 that the affair was brutal for the family brand that is so important to Disney, ABC News’ parent company.

In the end, the pair agreed to exit ABC, but now they’re back with a show beginning Dec. 5, where they could break their silence on the scandalous relationship that was clearly more serious than a fling.


The following Monday, ABC News president Kim Godwin did an about-face and pulled Holmes and Robach off the air, claiming the “distraction” had become too significant. 

Holmes, Robach and ABC News didn’t reply to a request for comment.
