Josh Elliott of ABC’s Good Morning America is jumping ship and heading for NBC, where he will be joining the network’s sports division. ABC News President Ben Sherwood announced Elliott’s departure in a memo to staff on Sunday, saying, “As many of you know, we have been negotiating with Josh these past several months, … In good faith, we worked hard to close a significant gap between our generous offer and his expectations. In the end, Josh felt he deserved a different deal and so he chose a new path.” Elliott will be replaced at GMA‘s news desk by Amy Robach, Sherwood said, adding that he expected her to become “a fierce and formidable full-time addition to our GMA team.”
