Sam Champion

Champion is the Ken doll look-alike who delivers the forecast on Good Morning America.

The son of a Marine, Champion was born in Kentucky but traveled throughout his childhood (Scotland, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Virginia) before returning to his home state to pick up a broadcasting degree from Eastern Kentucky University. Following a stint at Paducah's WPSD, Champion headed to Jacksonville, Fla. where he worked as a weekend weather anchor at WJKS. In 1988, he moved to New York to join WABC and spent a decade and a half as New York's sunniest weatherman. Champion went national in 2006 when he nabbed a coveted spot on GMA—Lee Goldberg replaced him on WABC. These days Champion's blindingly white smile can be seen from 7 AM to 9 AM alongside GMA hosts George Stephanopoulos, Robin Roberts, and Josh Elliott.

The perma-tanned weatherman is gay and active in the community. He and his long-term partner Rubem Robierb married in late 2012.
