ABC News has announced that its new afternoon talk show starring Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer will be replaced with a daily coronavirus special report.
According to Variety, Amy Robach will anchor Pandemic: What You Need to Know featuring the latest health and safety guidance from experts,
The network said that the suspension of the talk show, "Strahan, Sara and Keke," which airs at 1 p.m. ET, will only be short term.
Strahan will continue hosting Good Morning America, so it's really just Haines and Palmer on pause.
On Tuesday, the network revealed that an ABC News staffer covering the pandemic in Seattle had tested positive for coronavirus.
"The symptoms were mild, and I'm glad to report our colleague is feeling much better already. We're wishing for a full and speedy recovery," said ABC News President James Goldston. Staffers in the LA bureau are "working remotely until they can return to their offices."
"Out of an abundance of caution, as health officials advise, last week we told the entire Seattle coverage team to self isolate and monitor for any symptoms of COVID-19," Goldston added. "We immediately took steps to increase our protocols for cleaning and sanitizing the bureau, including frequently touched surfaces, the work stations and public areas."
