ABC has signed a “Good Morning America” anchor to a long-term contract. The New York Post’s Page Six reports that the network’s new deal with Robin Roberts is possibly worth between $13 million and $14 million a year.
ABC representatives declined to disclose the value of the contract, or whether one had been signed, the story adds.
Roberts reportedly didn’t want to create a bidding war, although she wanted a “fair deal,” the report notes. The anchor, who was recently on leave for six months after receiving a bone marrow transplant, was grateful for the support she received while she was sick, the piece adds.
ABC is also negotiating with the show’s other hosts, Josh Elliott and Lara Spencer.
“A source close to ABC said that talks with the other anchors are under way. Previous reports said that Elliott and Spencer’s reps had also been sniffing around other networks. Meanwhile, anchor George Stephanopoulos is reported to be signed through 2014,” the piece adds.
