After seven years as a morning fixture on ABC, Sam Champion will report the weather on Good Morning America for the last time on Wednesday.
But he'll be taking his act elsewhere.
ABC News president Ben Sherwood announced Monday that Champion, 52, "is leaving ABC News for a new opportunity at the Weather Channel. He will become the on-air face of the network, appearing as a host and serving as managing editor. Sam calls it a once in a lifetime opportunity."
