Stephanopoulos Offered GMA

You might not be waking up next to him, but get used to the sight of George Stephanopoulos in the morning: ABC has offered him the job as co-host of Good Morning America, according to The Washington Post. Stephanopoulos, the network’s chief Washington correspondent, has not yet accepted the offer to succeed Diane Sawyer, according to Howard Kurtz. He is negotiating both his multimillion dollar compensation and pushing for a role that focuses on his interests of politics and hard news rather than feature segments. Reporting on the negotiations in November, The Daily Beast's Rebecca Dana said Stephanopoulos wanted to keep his Sunday show. Kurtz’s sources warn that the negotiations are complicated enough that the deal might still fall apart.
