Good Morning America
The morning television program Good Morning America premiered on ABC on Nov. 3, 1975. At the time, it was hosted by David Hartman and Nancy Dussault, who was soon after replaced by Sandy Hill. The format of the morning variety program was modeled after a locally produced show in Cleveland called The Morning Exchange and the Boston affiliate show, Morning Exchange.
Since its debut, Good Morning America's cast has included some familiar faces such as Paula Zahn (1988-1990), Elizabeth Vargas (1996-1997), and Chris Cuomo (2006-2009). Today, the show features news, interviews, weather forecasts, special-interest stories, and popular segments such as "GMA Heat Index, "GMA Deals & Steals," and "GMA Play of the Day." As for its decades-long competition with the Today Show, GMA has the most-watched morning show since Summer 2012. GMA has also won three Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Morning Program, and its spinoffs include Good Night America, GMA Lunch Break, and Strahan, Sara, and Keke.
