Due to the ABC network's recent success, producers are 'reshuffling staff' to focus on their winning team while cutting back on other hosts' show time.
The 'winning team' consists of Michael Strahan, Robin Roberts, and George Stephanopoulos. That means less screen time for Lara Spencer and Amy Robach.
As reported by Page Six, Spencer will be working fewer hours in order to focus on her growing production company, Duffkat Media, while Roback will be promoted to the news magazine, 20/20.
Spencer signed a new contract with the network which allows her more free-time and flexibility. In 2017, Spencer said that she loves being part of Good Morning America, but creating content is her passion.
“It’s all about really being organized and one step ahead. I could never do all these things if I didn’t have the support around me.”

DuffKat Media is known for lifestyle shows such as Flea Market Flip and Farmer's Market Flip. Spencer loves that she's still part of Good Morning America while having the extra time to focus on her company.
According to Inquisitr, Spencer is also looking forward to spending more time with her family, which will be a delicate balance for her busy schedule.
Robach will also take a step back from Good Morning America to replace Elizabeth Vargas on 20/20, ABC's news magazine.
The reshuffling won't take her away from traveling to cover breaking news events such as natural disasters or major news events.
ABC is going head to head with its rival, NBC, whose award-winning show, Today, is currently at the top spot and continues to soar.
NBC's dream team is none other than Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb, who have been raking in high ratings since disgraced Matt Lauer was dismissed for sexual misconduct in November 2017.
