'GMA' adds another man: ESPN's Tony Reali

By Brian Stelter, CNN Senior Media Correspondent 

One week after former ESPN anchor Josh Elliott exited "Good Morning America," the ABC morning program is adding ESPN host Tony Reali as a contributor.

Reali's role was first described by The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday. Reali, the host of "Around the Horn" on ESPN since 2004, is expected to appear on "GMA" two or three days a week as a part of the show's social media segments.

The program named a corner of its studio the "Social Square" earlier this year in an attempt to connect social media conversations to the live broadcasts. NBC's "Today" show has a similar set-up, "The Orange Room," and Carson Daly frequently leads segments from there.

The "GMA" position is part of a new contract for Reali that also extends his time at ESPN. (Both ABC and ESPN are owned by Disney (DISFortune 500). Reali, who also appears on the ESPN show "Pardon The Interruption," will leave that program. "Around the Horn" - which is currently taped in Washington, D.C. - will move to New York.
