Champion is making his Atlanta debut during a cold-snap during one of the city’s chilliest winters on the books and during a heavy snowstorm striking the northeast. He appeared at Centennial Park and also within the warmth of the studio.
As you may recall, Champion decided to take a gig as a managing editor and anchor with The Weather Channel in December, ending his illustrious career on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” On Thursday, Champion also appeared on the “Today” show to visit with former rival Al Roker and the rest of the team to plug his new Weather Channel morning show set to air in March after Al Roker’s show; the show has yet to be named. NBC owns The Weather Channel.
Champion married Rubem Robierb in New York in 2012 after meeting at a New Year’s Eve party four years ago. In Georgia, of course, his marriage is not legally recognized.
