Is Sam Champion back on 'GMA'?

Sam is on Good Morning Amerca and more for at least one week. On April 3, 2022, he posted on Instagram about a marathon of shows he will be a part of on ABC. From Monday, April 4 to Thursday, April 7, he will be giving viewers weather reports on GMA and Eyewitness News in the morning and at noon.

But this doesn't mean that he's permanently back on GMA. It looks like this is another instance where he's filling in for Ginger. According to People, he took her place behind the newsdesk while she was on maternity leave in 2016. Then, in 2018, he did so again while Ginger was pregnant with her second child.

Currently, Ginger is in Jackson, MI covering the tornados that have damaged so much in that area. On Instagram, she's been posting updates of her time there.

So viewers can still see her on GMA. She just won't be in the studio live with the show's audience. For now, it's not clear when she will be back. But since Sam said he will be on ABC until Thursday, she may come back the following day.
