GMA3 anchors Amy Robach and T..J. Holmes have been indefinitely taken off the air after allegedly having an affair together. According to Page Six, ABC News President Kim Godwin announced the network’s decision during an internal call on Monday. Speaking with staffers, Godwin said the alleged affair had become too much of an “internal and external distraction.”

“After a lot of thought, I am taking Amy and T.J. off the air as we figure this out,” the president said.

The alleged affair was “not a violation of company policy,” according to Godwin, but the company had to take them off the air to protect the GMA brand.
