The Good Morning America co-anchor is reportedly cutting back her appearances on the show to focus more on her passion.


Lara Spencer, as revealed by People, will be seen less on the show because she wants to continue flourishing her lifestyle brand, as well as working on her production company.

Spencer will still be hosting on selected days each week on Good Morning America and she will still do special assignment reporting according to Country Living.

For some time now, the host has been busy working behind the scenes on DuffKat Media, which is her lifestyle brand and production company.

DuffKat is named after Spencer’s two teenage children, Duff and Kate.

She cut down her GMA schedules to give her more time to work on more shows like Flea Market Flip on HGTV.


A source claimed that Spencer is aware of the time it will take for her to successfully run her company. She knew she had to make sacrifices, which meant giving up co-anchoring on GMA every day for the entire week.

She also would like to spend more time with her family. Spencer currently has her hands full planning her wedding with her two-year boyfriend, Rick McVey.


Talking to TheWrap in early 2018, Spencer explained, “I love being part of the GMA family so much, but making and creating content has been a passion of mine for a really long time.”

Another change that will occur for Good Morning America is Amy Robach’s new schedule.

Page Six claimed that she will also cut back her appearances to give more attention to her new role as the host of 20/20.

Meanwhile, fans of the morning show will still see more of Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, and Michael Strahan.

Good Housekeeping asked Spencer’s representatives for comment but they took some time to respond. As for ABC, their staff refused to make a comment.
