“Hosts and executive producers Robach and Holmes are a formidable broadcasting team with decades of experience delivering headline news and captivating viewers nationwide. Now, the duo will get behind the microphone to explore meaningful conversations about current events, pop culture, and everything in between. Nothing is off limits,” iHeartMedia said in the statement.

ABC fired Robach and Holmes in January after the outlet conducted an investigation into their affair. The investigation looked into whether their affair violated company rules and if they used company resources to keep their affair a secret, according to TMZ.

The two were first removed from their positions on “Good Morning America” due to their relationship allegedly being an “internal and external distraction,” according to Page Six.

The couple went through a reportedly “extremely contentious” mediation process to discuss the findings of the executives’ investigation, who accused Robach and Holmes of various forms of misconduct, according to TMZ. The executives reportedly accused Robach of storing liquor in her dressing room and attending a College Football National Championship game in 2022 and going to work intoxicated the next day.

A source disputed those claims and said Robach was simply tired and had not been intoxicated, TMZ reported. The source also accused ABC executives of conducting a “witch hunt” on the couple.

The affair also reportedly made their coworkers on set feel “uncomfortable,” according to TMZ. Representatives at ABC previously said Robach and Holmes did not violate company policy by dating one another.
