Elliott leaving ABC for NBC Sports

New York (AP) -- ABC said "Good Morning America" host Josh Elliott has told the network he's accepted an offer to go to NBC Sports, and he has been quickly replaced on the morning show by Amy Robach.

ABC News President Ben Sherwood said Elliott told them he was leaving on Sunday. Elliott was the news anchor for the top-rated morning broadcast, part of a tight-knit team with Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos and Lara Spencer.

He was the second defection at "GMA" in the last few months, with weather forecaster Sam Champion leaving for a job at The Weather Channel.

Robach, who used to work at NBC News, is familiar to the ABC audience as a fill-in for Roberts when she was ill.

There was no immediate comment from NBC Sports.
