Lara Spencer is a co-anchor for ABC's “Good Morning America.” She joined the program in March, 2011. This is Spencer's second return to “GMA.” She was previously the show's National Correspondent for 5 years, from 1999 to 2004.

Since Spencer’s return to “GMA,” she has covered major stories including the Royal Jubilee, Hurricane Sandy, and the tragedy in Newtown, CT. She has also co-hosted the 2013 The Oscars Red Carpet Show and the 2014 Miss America Pageant.

Spencer began her broadcasting career in the NBC Page Program. Her first reporting job was at WDEF-TV in Chattanooga, TN, where she was, as she calls it, a "one man band"--shooting, reporting, and editing all of her stories. From there, she landed on her home turf when the New York native began reporting for News 12 Long Island.

From 1995 to 1999, Spencer was a reporter and anchor for WABC-TV's "Eyewitness News" in New York City, where she covered breaking stories including the crash of TWA Flight 800 and the death of Princess Diana. But it was her nightly feature, "Life Around Here with Lara Spencer" that got her noticed by “Good Morning America,” and she was asked to join them while still working at Ch.7 in 1999.

She moved full time to "GMA" the following year, lending her infectious curiosity and writing skills to memorable stories including "50 States in 50 Weeks: In Search of America." The emmy-nominated series featured Spencer exploring the diversity of the American states.

In 2004, Spencer launched and began hosting the syndicated entertainment news magazine show, “The Insider,” and also hosted the PBS series “Antiques Roadshow,” (2002-2004). In 2010 she created the HGTV show “Flea Market Flip” which she continues to executive produce and host. She also created the primetime game show “It’s Worth What?,” which aired on NBC with Cedric the Entertainer as host. She is the author of New York Times bestseller “I Brake For Yard Sales,” from Abrams books and is currently writing her second book on decorating.

Spencer graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism. She attended on a full athletic scholarship for springboard and platform diving and was named an All-American athlete in 1991. She is married and a mother to a son and a daughter, Duff and Kate.
