‘GMA Weekend’ Anchor Dan Harris to Exit ABC News to Focus on Meditation Company
“Good Morning America” weekend co-anchor Dan Harris announced Sunday that he is exiting ABC News after two decades to focus on his meditation company, Ten Percent Happier.
“I am going to be leaving ABC News in two months,” Harris said on air. “This was a difficult decision for me. As some of you may know, I’ve been spending a lot of time on my extracurricular gig, my side hustle, a meditation company, called Ten Percent Happier. It’s been a lot to juggle and even though I’m a public proponent of work/life balance, if I’m honest, I’ve struggled to follow my own advice.”
After 21 years at ABC News, Harris added that co-anchoring the weekend edition of “Good Morning America” “has been one of the highlights of my life. My colleagues, both on and off the air, have become like a family. I really do love these people, and I’m gonna miss them horribly.”
After suffering an on-air panic attack in 2004, Harris turned to meditation and soon became an advocate for the practice. That led to a 2014 book, “10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Really Works – a True Story” as well as his own company, which includes a mobile meditation app as well as a podcast.
Since joining ABC News in 2000, Harris made a name for himself anchoring the network’s coverage of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. He then anchored “World News Sunday” from 2006 to 2011. He has served as co-anchor of “Good Morning America” weekend edition since 2010.
Watch his announcement below.

Good Morning America debuted on November 3, 1975. The segments on each episode feature news, interviews, forecasts, and special interest stories. The show’s main anchors are Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulous, Michael Strahan, and weather anchor Ginger Zee.
According to Deadline Hollywood, GMA has been the most watched morning show in total viewers and key demos since 2012. Prior to that, it trailed NBC’s Today.
The show has garnered plenty of awards over the course of its run, including three Daytime Emmy Awards for “Outstanding Morning Program”.
Robin Roberts, who has been co-anchoring since 2005, grew up in Mississippi and attended Southeastern Louisiana University. In 2012, she earned the Peabody Award after her treatment for myelodysplastic syndrome was chronicled. Roberts was a sportscaster for ESPN from 1990 to 2005; after which time she moved over full time to Good Morning America.
Michael Strahan was part of the duo of Live! with Kelly and Michael with Kelly Ripa from 2012 to 2016. That year, he switched over to become a regular contributor on Good Morning America.
George Stephanopoulos has been the chief political correspondent for ABC News for years, as well as the host of ABC’s Sunday Morning This Week.
Good Morning America’s Michael Strahan among Blue Origin crew
NEW YORK – “Good Morning America” co-host Michael Strahan is going to space next month.
Strahan, who turned 50 on Sunday, will join Laura Shepard Churchley, the eldest daughter of astronaut Alan Shepard, on the Dec. 9 mission aboard the New Shepard, a spacecraft named after her father and the first American in space.
The Blue Origin flight, the company headed by Jeff Bezos, will also carry four paying customers and will be the third by the New Shepard craft this year to shuttle humans to space.
Blue Origin has not disclosed the ticket price for paying customers.
The 10-minute flight, five minutes less than Alan Shepard’s 1961 Mercury flight, will launch from West Texas carrying six people, two more than the previous two flights this year with humans aboard.
Similar to previous jaunts, Strahan's flight is likely to include about three minutes of weightlessness and a view of the curvature of the Earth. Passengers are subjected to nearly 6 G’s, or six times the force of Earth’s gravity, as the capsule descends.
Strahan, who played for 15 years in the National Football League with the New York Giants, reported on the first Blue Origin flight for “Good Morning America.”
“I want to go to space,” Strahan told “GMA.” “I think being there at the first launch, it really was mind-blowing.”
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and Star Trek star William Shatner flew to space on separate New Shepard flights this year. Shatner became the oldest person in space, eclipsing the previous record — set by a passenger on Bezos' flight in July — by eight years.
Virgin Galactic’s Richard Branson went into space in his own rocket ship in July, followed by Bezos nine days later on Blue Origin’s first flight with a crew. Elon Musk’s SpaceX made its first private voyage in mid-September, though without Musk on board.

'Good Morning America' heads to Kelley Country Creamery to taste 'America's best ice-cream'
EDEN - Cream always rises to the top and "Good Morning America" is headed to the rural countryside of Northeast Wisconsin on Thursday to celebrate the nation's best little ice-cream shop.
The ABC morning show is filming at Kelley Country Creamery near Eden in Fond du Lac County for a segment on Wisconsin to include in its "Rise and Shine" series that visits all 50 states as the nation emerges from the coronavirus pandemic.
Karen and Tim Kelley, and their five children — Amie, Betsy, Heidi, Molly and Clark — operate a 200-acre dairy with 65 Holsteins that provide milk for the creamery —complete with a viewing window where visitors can watch the ice cream being made.
This isn't the family's first go-round with the morning show, either. In 2013, the Kelleys flew to New York for a guest appearance on "Good Morning America" when the show first named their homemade ice cream the best in America.
WATCH: THE KELLY FAMILY ON GOOD MORNING AMERICA
On a Facebook post Karen Kelley invited customers to head on out Thursday afternoon to fill the shop and welcome the crew, scheduled to begin filming about 1 p.m.
"I'm a little overwhelmed, it's been crazy," Kelley told The Reporter as she bustled around the store Wednesday in preparation for the big event.
This week, Kelley's sweet products received accolades at the World Dairy Expo Championship Dairy Product Contest held in Madison. Their pralines and cream flavor and a low-carb, no-sugar-added vanilla with fudge and caramel swirl ice cream both earned first-place awards, and a red velvet ice cream cookie sandwich took home a third-place win.
The Kelley farm, located at W5215 County B, has been in the family since 1861. A long-held passion and dream of Karen Kelley were realized when she opened Kelley Country Creamery in May 2010.
The creamery is just across the pasture from the family farm on Kelly Road.
The reception from the public for the family's unique product — old-fashioned premium ice-cream made from fresh, non-homogenized milk — has been overwhelming. Using only its website to advertise, the business has drawn customers from all corners of the world to sample their frozen treats made from new and old family recipes.
"One of the unique features of our ice cream is that it isn't homogenized (fat particles are broken down and distributed uniformly in the product). To my knowledge that's not done anywhere else in the state," Kelley said. "We try to keep the ice cream in its most natural state and we've been hearing from some of our customers who are lactose intolerant, diabetic, have Crohn's Disease or have dairy allergies, wondering why they can eat our ice cream and not anyone else's."
Kelley's started with 32 flavors but now has recipes for more than 350 ice cream options, though only 22 are available at a time. To-go containers, ice cream cakes and pies and other treats can be found in the freezer case.
The “Best Ice Cream in the Middle of Nowhere” slogan on T-shirts worn by staff is more than just bragging. USA TODAY voted Kelley Country Creamery as the best ice cream shop in Wisconsin in 2010. The business was also recognized by the Dairy Business Innovation Center for innovation and dedication to growing Wisconsin's dairy industry.
The creamery is open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Customers can expect old standards along with some new "Flavor of the Month" selections like seven layer ice cream, a spin-off of the magic cookie bar recipe. And from time to time, the family also features a special "Flavor of the Month" in honor or memory of local residents.
"We're a very creative family. We never stop trying to think of something new," Kelley said.
The show airs Oct. 7 live from the the Milwaukee Art Museum, Kelley said, and adds the family will do their best to accommodate everyone who turns out for the filming.
"Good Morning America" is also featuring Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese of Jefferson County on its Wisconsin segment and will be filming at their farm and store in Waterloo on Friday.

Michael Strahan, 'Good Morning America' host and Pro Football Hall of Famer, tests positive for COVID-19
"We know you have noticed that Michael has not been here with us this week. He wanted us to let you know that he has tested positive for COVID. He is at home quarantining," anchor Robin Roberts said to open Thursday's 'GMA.'
Anchor George Stephanopoulos said Strahan is grateful for all those who have reached out and given their well wishes.
"He is also feeling well and looking forward to being back here shortly," Stephanopoulos said.
Stephanopoulos said everyone working at 'GMA,' on and off camera, has been cleared by Disney to be at the studio after contact tracing following CDC guidelines.

Roberts said she has been texting with Strahan who said his dog Enzo has been keeping him nice and warm.
Strahan, who also provides analysis on the "Fox NFL Sunday" pregame show, appeared remotely during last Sunday's NFC championship game. Strahan, though, also did remote appearances during much of the season for the network's Thursday night games to not conflict with his "GMA" schedule.
The 49-year-old Strahan has been absent from the ABC morning show all week and it remains uncertain when he will be on again.
He has been a part of "Good Morning America" since 2016 and has been a fixture on Fox's NFL coverage since retiring after the New York Giants won the third of their four Super Bowl titles during the 2007 season.
Disney is the parent company of this ABC station. The Associated Press contributed to this report.
Michael Strahan Extends Contract With ABC News, ‘Good Morning America’ (EXCLUSIVE)
Michael Strahan will continue to greet ABC morning viewers as part of a renewed pact that will keep him on “Good Morning America” for the next several years.
Strahan, who was named a “GMA” co-anchor in 2016 and placed alongside Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos, has signed a new four-year deal with ABC News, according to a person familiar with the matter. ABC News declined to make executives available for comment.
He extends his contract at a moment when TV’s a.m. news wars are starting to heat up anew. CBS News has retooled its morning program, enlisting former football player Nate Burleson to anchor “CBS Mornings” with Gayle King and Tony Dokoupil in a new Times Square studio not too far away from the one used by “GMA.” NBC News has been working to make its venerable “Today” available to a wider audience with a new slate of streaming-video programs and podcasts that expand the show beyond its morning hours.
Despite the rivals’ actions, “Good Morning America” continues as the nation’s most-watched morning news program, a position it has maintained for nine consecutive seasons. NBC’s “Today” dominates in the category of viewer most desired by advertisers, people between the age of 25 and 54, but “GMA” this past season cut its deficit in the category to 86,000 viewers, its closest margin in six seasons.
All three morning programs, however, have been losing viewers overall as more traditional TV users migrate to cable-news programs focused on politics, as well as streaming video and mobile devices that offer new ways to access news and information.
“Good Morning America” is seen as a pillar of the overall business of ABC’s parent, Walt Disney Co. “GMA” captured $293.6 million in advertising in 2020, according to Kantar, a tracker of ad spending. The show provides a massive promotional platform to the company, which relies on it to get word out about many of its movies and initiatives.
Strahan helped usher in a new era at “GMA,” which had long relied on a more extended group of anchors in its first hour. Prior to the coronavirus pandemic, Strahan also was part of a second “GMA” hour that used a live, in-studio audience. And the former New York Giant, who also works as a football analyst for Fox Sports, helped launch an early-afternoon version of “GMA” that is now utilized as a hard-news update for the daytime crowd.
Prior to working at “GMA,” Strahan expanded beyond sports as the co-host of ABC’s syndicated “Live!” opposite Kelly Ripa. He began contributing to “Good Morning America” in 2014, moving full time to the show two years later.
ABC keeps Strahan in place at “GMA” after it recently named a new executive producer to run the show. Simone Swink, a longtime senior producer at the morning program, was elevated to the role of senior producer last month. She replaces Michael Corn, who left abruptly in April, and was recently accused of sexual harassment in a lawsuit. Corn has denied the allegations. Christine Brouwer, another veteran producer at the show, was made executive broadcast producer of the program earlier this month.
