It was announced that former Good Morning America weather anchor Sam Champion will be returning next week to help fill-in for current meteorologist Ginger Zee, who is on maternity leave. Champion left the show in December 2013 to head to the Weather Channel where he is a reporter and managing editor. He did host their morning weather program AMHQ, which he departed in October as the channel went through major cutbacks.

Sam tweeted his excitement for his impending return.
