ABC has taken the wraps off plans for a “Good Morning America” marathon — billed as the morning show’s “Biggest Event Ever.” The 40-hour marathon is a celebration of the show’s 40th anniversary.
The “40 for 40” marathon gets under way Tuesday, Nov. 17, and will feature 40 consecutive hours of “GMA” programming, with highlights that will include an exclusive performance by One Direction, the first-ever “GMA” live-stream of “Dancing with the Stars” rehearsals, a road trip on the “GMA 4040 Express” bus and special access to the Marvel Universe.
The show also is hinting at historic anchor team reunions and other surprises.
Among the personalities scheduled to make special appearances during an on-air “GMA” reunion set for Nov. 19 are Charles Gibson, Diane Sawyer, Joan Lunden, David Hartman, Josh Elliott, Sam Champion and Nancy Dussault.
The event will run from 5 p.m. ET on Nov. 17 to 9 a.m. ET on Nov. 19.
