SAM CHAMPION SPEAKS OUT
He was once a valuable part of ABC's "Good Morning America," but today, The Weather Channel's "AMHQ" host Sam Champion has no love for the network morning show genre.
In a HuffPost Live interview on Thursday, Champion said:
"Morning television is getting to the point where I need a costume malfunction moment, you know what I mean? It's getting ... to a hysteria of everything's gotta be flashing all the time."
And while the loud antics are of concern to Champion, so are the content offerings.
Champion: "Let's just say, on any given day if you're watching a network morning show, I'm going to find a cast of the 'Housewives,' I'm going to find a 'Dancing' star, I'm going to find a musical concert, I'm going to find shopping...That's morning television. But it isn't, and it shouldn't be."
Champion says his Weather Channel show will focus on "stories you're not going to find in mainstream media." He went on to say that "the audience wants to see [those] more."
Champion: "I think you want to be smarter when you walk out the door. So let's talk about things that will impact you."
