GMA: Ginger Zee Covers the Weather
Sam Champion was out today and the wonderful Ginger Zee, the meteorologist who normally works on the weekend edition of GMA, filled in for him. She pointed out a sign that a fan made that had spinning clouds and a spinning sun and a picture of Sam Champion on it. “Look at this sign. Look at the art skills!” Ginger Zee said. The 30-something man holding the sign looked really disappointed. Ginger told him that Sam would have loved it. “I was going to give it to him,” he said, sounding extremely sad. But I don’t know why he was so bummed out. That’s Ginger Zee standing next to him! I don’t have a crush on her.
