ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ to broadcast live from Pittsburgh

Emily Balser
Ginger Zee, Michael Strahan, and Lara Spencer and the whole “Good Morning America” team are heading to Pittsburgh for a live broadcast on Thursday, July 25.

“Good Morning America” hits the Steel City on Thursday as part of its “The Big Summer Road Trip” series.

“We’re popping up in Pittsburgh,” said Ginger Zee, chief meteorologist for ABC News, in a video posted Monday.

Zee sported a Steelers hat as she made the announcement.

‘GMA’ Anchor Robin Roberts said during Monday’s show they will be broadcasting live from Pittsburgh on Thursday where there will be “big surprises.”

“We’re going to honor a hometown hero,” Roberts said. “We do that every time we pop up in a new town.”

Roberts said the show also will bring along Tory Johnson for a “deals and steals” segment.

Roberts made sure to recognize the local ABC affiliate, WTAE-TV.

“Big shout out to our great ABC station there, WTAE,” she said. “They are fantastic.”

A post shared on the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership Facebook page said the show will be broadcast live from the Gateway Clipper.

Audience spots will have limited availability because of an “overwhelming response,” an ABC spokeswoman said Tuesday.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
