It’s a sad time for the “Good Morning America” family with the loss of its cameraman, Tony Greer due to the Coronavirus. Greer died of complications related to the virus in New York, one of the most hard-hit states in the country.

The announcement was first made by GMA co-anchor, Robin Roberts. In a live telecast, she described Tony as “a bright light” throughout the over six years he worked in the show. “You could just feel Tony’s beautiful spirit, you could feel it from a mile away.”

On the morning show, Michael also sang praises for Tony and described him as “a total pro, and someone that was a joy to see every day.”

A video tribute was made for Tony featuring his selfies with different stars including Idris Elba, Jennifer Aniston, and Kamala Harris. Robin recounted how much Tony loved meeting the stars and having his picture taken with them

A Chicago native, Tony had a longtime girlfriend who he enjoyed travel with and they would travel a lot, according to the news anchor. He was also a musician who “played a mean guitar,” Robin added.

Michael is currently taking a break from his other show, “Strahan, Sara, and Keke” to give way to the coronavirus telecast, “Pandemic: What You Need To Know” by Amy Robach.

ABC temporarily suspended the afternoon show in order to give its audience daily updates about COVID-19. It will only be a short-term suspension and promises the show’s return once the pandemic subsides.

The show’s suspension in mid-March coincided with the network’s announcement that one of its news staffers had contracted the virus. The unnamed staffer who worked in their Los Angeles bureau reportedly had mild symptoms then and was on his way to recovery.
