Lara Spencer is coming back to "Good Morning America" from whence she came (she also came from WABC/7, of course, but that was before "GMA.") She'll be the show's new "lifestyle anchor" which sounds a bit like what she's been doing at "The Insider" the last few years. ABC News president Ben Sherwood's memo provides more details...

" I'm writing with exciting news about the GMA family. In May, our very own Lara Spencer will come home to ABC News as 'Good Morning America's' lifestyle anchor. In this new role, Lara will bring her well-known and much admired versatility and vitality to a broad range of GMA stories. Lara grew up at WABC-TV where she made her name covering features and hard news including the death of Princess Diana and the crash of TWA 800. In 1999, she joined GMA as a national correspondent and many of us remember her spirited 50 state road trip in a bright red convertible. Lara also hosted 'Antiques Roadshow' on PBS. In 2003, Lara moved to 'The Insider' as co-anchor in New York and later as solo anchor in Los Angeles. Over the past 7 years, she has interviewed celebrities and newsmakers from George Clooney to Hillary Clinton. At GMA, Lara will focus on many issues including family, parenting, health, fitness and work/life balance. She will also help lead our entertainment and celebrity coverage. In addition, she will contribute to Nightline and, like our entire on-air team, she will report for every platform. She will be based in New York."
