Footage to air on “GMA,” Tuesday, May 25
For the first time since the BP Deepwater Horizon tragedy over a month ago, and as frustration mounts over the cleanup process, “Good Morning America” Weather Anchor Sam Champion, along with Philippe Cousteau and a team of specially-trained divers, will report from under the water in the Gulf of Mexico to see first-hand what is happening beneath the surface. Wearing special hazmat dive suits, the team is the first to dive in – and document – the oil-laden waters off of the Louisiana coastline. The exclusive footage will air on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday, May 25.
Champion has reported several times from the region since the accident on April 20.
The Emmy Award-winning morning news program, featuring the anchor team of Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, Sam Champion and Juju Chang, airs live Monday through Friday from 7:00 – 9:00 a.m. ET on the ABC Television Network. Jim Murphy is the senior executive producer and Tom Cibrowski is the executive producer of ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
