GMA Saturday Adds Another Hour Beginning Oct. 5

By Jason Lynch 

Good Morning America Saturday is doubling down this fall.

The ABC Saturday morning newscast is expanding to two hours, beginning on Oct. 5.

On that date, the two-hour GMA Saturday will air starting at 8 a.m. ET in close to 100 markets—including New York, Chicago and Philadelphia—which cover 40% of the country. All ABC-owned stations said they’ll air the expanded show by early next year, after college football ends.


“Every weekend viewers turn to GMA for the news they need to start their day. I’m thrilled to have another hour on Saturdays to tell these important stories and highlight the work of our incredible team,” Mike Milhaven, senior broadcast producer, GMA Weekend Edition, said in a statement.

GMA Saturday, which debuted in 2004, is anchored by Dan Harris, Eva Pilgrim, Whit Johnson and Rob Marciano.
