‘Good Morning America’ Gets a New Weekend Anchor

Aug 11, 2014  •  Post A Comment

A new weekend anchor joined ABC’s “Good Morning America” this past weekend. Deadline.com reports that the morning show brought aboard Paula Faris to replace Bianna Golodryga.

Golodryga left ABC News for a new role at Yahoo, while Faris moved to the morning show from “World News Now.” The new weekend team at “GMA” also includes Rob Marciano, who was named senior meteorologist last month, the story notes.

“Marciano, who had been co-anchor at ET since 2013, is maybe better known for the decade he spent as hot weather guy at CNN,” the piece notes.

Paula Faris


  1. Sarah the weekend and occasional person on Good Morning America weekend and also filling in for the weekday show is not very good. She seems forced and phoney. I so miss Josh and Sam and many people agree with me. Lara Spencer very genuine.

  2. I could only take so much of the comedy act Bianna and Dan did every weekend.
    Love Paula! If Dan stops trying to be a comedian, I might stay tuned-in more.

  3. Paula talks WAY too fast. Somebody needs to tell her to slow down.

  4. I love Dan, Ron, Rob and Sarah. I do not like Paula Feris.
    Feris interrupts to much, and she is not funny.
    As for the weekday crew, there needs to be more men and not Strahan. The show also needs to be more serious, it has become to silly. LOVE GEORGE!!!!!

  5. WOW, Sarah is super annoying. She needs to chill. It’s like she has to talk over everyone

  6. PLEASE REPLACE PAULA FARIS!!! My husband and I are faithful viewers of GMA and GMA Weekend and have been for several years. However, we are disappointed every weekend since Paula Faris joined as co-anchor. We love the rest of the group but Paula is so loud, rude and obnoxious. It appears she wants to be the center of attention ALWAYS no matter what the topic or who is presenting. Her loud voice walks all over the others when they are trying to talk. We find ourselves talking to the TV saying “just shut up Paula!” So, please consider replacing her with one of your more appropriate and pleasant, as well as talented reporters who have filled in like Linzie Janis or Cecilia Vega. Thank you!

    Hope this gets to the Executives at ABC!

  7. I was surprised to find that others feel the same way I do towards Paula Faris. I noticed a few months ago before Paula went to “The View” that she was acting real ugly toward Ron. I even brought it to my mom’s attention to see if it was me and she had noticed it too. Then when she started working for the view, she changed her attitude (sort of – fake).
    Just like Jill stated above; Paula is so loud and rude. She wants to be the center of attention regardless of the subject or who is presenting it and always drowning out her co-workers. She tried drowning Sara out for a while but now she shuts her down.
    I find myself muting the TV when she speaks are yelling for her to Shut-up even if she can’t hear me. They need to put her on during the week so I can’t see nor hear her.

    As for Sarah, I know she likes being the clown of the show but with all of the smiling that she does she may want to invest in Botox because the wrinkles will catch up to her and quickly. Calm down Sarah …

  8. I Love the view but I hate friday because Paula is a fill in on that day and it’s to much for me. I don’t watch it because of her. Then we have her on the week-end GMA. Again to much for me. I feel she is just to loud and she wants to talk over everyone else. It seems that someone would tell her to please show more Respect for the other people that is on the show. Because she isn’t the only person on the show….More than just her.Gosh I wonder do you guys run out of people to fill in on these shows? More people out there than just a hand full.

  9. I like Paula Feris. She offers some sensibility to the group.

  10. I love Paula ferris. She is intelligent and funny. Her compassion shows through .

  11. Paula is so annoying. She talks over everyone on GMA Weekend & butts in on Adriana when she does Pop News. She is not as funny as she thinks she is. When the show comes on I hope that she is not there, so disappointed when she is. I never watch the View, but can understand why she only “fills in”. I know this is redundant but maybe GMA will get the hint that she is not popular & they will replace her with someone who is not so overwhelming, fingers crossed.

  12. Get rid of Paula I agree with everything the others say about butting in and being loud. She is so rude I try to ignor her but can’t. How do the others stand working with her. And Friday on the View same thing. She needs manners get her off

  13. I have watched my last Good Morning America on Saturday morning after Paula Faris was just downright mean to Ron last weekend. It’s tiresome to watch her with her condescending attitude, and her bossiness. You can tell by the looks on her co-workers faces they are fed up with her. Someone should let her know if she’s not in charge . Human Resources needs to step up to the plate and do their job .
    She’s the reason I stopped watching The View and now this.

  14. Paula Faris is THE most annoying cohost for GMA. She was given a chance when she became weekend cohost but goodness can the woman just shut up & not have to give her opinion on EVERYTHING??!?! An mentioned by the other viewers, she needs to respect her coworkers & allow them to do their jobs – it’s sad how often she talks over them or interjects with her own comments. I can only hope she is replaced soon. I do LOVE the rest of the GMA crew – both weekend & weekday but her antics very off-putting. Maybe keep her for an occasional story but not as co-host..

  15. My husband and I agree. Paula Farris is super annoying. I’m sure she is a lovely person but she always has to put her two cents in commenting and interrupting WAY TOO MUCH!!! I actually dread watching her. Please tell her she is NOT funny. She is super annoying. Can she please go back to journalism class and get a refresher on
    proper on camera etiquette!!! Tone it down Paula!

  16. I quit watching the View because of her and love GMA but the way she “has” to lean in on the cohosts and overtalk them in tone and comments reminds me of a nasty little 5 yr old. She is absolutely horrible and I feel so sorry for the others that have their parts of the news disrupted and drown out by the attention seeking woman. She needs sa different job maybe in a factory so she has a reason to talk loud. Disgusting and HR need to shut her down and maybe fire her.
