Good Morning America Weatherman Comes Out, Announces Engagement

Apparently the first public acknowledgment that he's gay


Exciting news for "Good Morning America" personality Sam Champion—he's set to tie the knot with longtime boyfriend Rubem Robierb later this year.

The New York Times broke the news of the weather anchor's engagement Oct. 5 subtly, in a story about MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts' wedding to Patrick Abner, which took place Sept. 29 in New York. "We're getting married New Year's Eve in Miami," Champion, 51, told the Times.
