'GMA' weathercaster Sam Champion planning marriage

NEW YORK (AP) — "Good Morning America" weather anchor Sam Champion is tying the knot.

ABC News says Champion and his boyfriend, Rubem Robierb, are engaged to be married later this year. Champion tweeted on Friday he's "never been happier" to share a bit of personal news.

ABC says Champion and Robierb met through mutual friends in Miami, where Robierb lives.

Champion joined ABC News in 2006. Before that, he spent 18 years at New York City television station WABC.

Robierb was born in Brazil. He's a fine-arts photographer who shows his work in Miami, Atlanta, New York and Santa Monica, Calif.

Too bad for you Dan161....GMA is the best thing to happen to morning TV.  The chemistry is amazing as well as their sense of compassion , humor and gift in news delivery.  i've been to the studio twice to meet Robin, George, and Sam and they are just as warm in person.  Robin is a pure inspiration to me.  Sad you feel that way;(
