ABC News president Kim Godwin told staff that Janai Norman will join the weekend edition of Good Morning America as its new co-anchor, working alongside anchors Whit Johnson and Eva Pilgrim. Norman succeeds Dan Harris, who left the weekend edition of GMA last summer to focus on his meditation company.
Godwin wrote in her memo: “Janai is a versatile and talented journalist, whether she is anchoring at the desk, conducting a one-on-one interview with a newsmaker of the day or reporting in the field on breaking news. She puts her heart into her work and makes it a priority to cover the most important underreported issues of our time, including the maternal mortality crisis facing Black women and the stigma of mental health.”
Norman started at ABC News as an intern at News One in 2011, and has worked as a correspondent and anchor at ABC News. As a host and anchor, she led Pop News on the weekend, and was the overnight anchor for World News Now and America This Morning.
