Tony Perkins is leaving Good Morning America after seven years. He’s returning to Washington, DC to do weather and stories.
OK – I’ll admit it, that is my ideal job. I can say that in public, because I’m sure even my bosses know. They also know how unlikely it is to ever come true.
The GMA weather position is very different from local weather. I used to fill-in there and remember hearing joking references to 50 states/60 seconds. But, it was loads of fun and is probably more so now with the addition of interaction with the Times Square crowd.
Just in case you’re Ben Sherwood¹, reading this, wondering who to choose… here I am.
More than likely my heart will be broken. I have been without an agent for years. There was no reason to have one, considering I’ve been at one station for 21 years. I don’t think a submission ‘over the transom’ would even be considered.
However, I can still dream.
¹ – Ben Sherwood is executive producer of GMA and probably ultimately responsible for making the hire.
