Regarding Robach and Holmes’s departure from the network, a source informs us, “They have not finished mediation — but, sure, that will be the conclusion.”
We’re told that, while the media outlets’ departure agreements have not been finalized, that time is rapidly approaching.

On Friday, TMZ reported that ABC insiders said the network and its anchors had chosen to part ways following a “tough” mediation.
The 45-year-old Holmes and the 49-year-old Robach will cash out on their contracts.
A source close to the situation told Page Six that if an arrangement is not reached, “Amy and T.J. would be looking at launching litigation against the network.”
We also learned that after their brief vacation in Turks and Caicos, Holmes and Robach flew to Los Angeles to undertake the mediation sessions.
According to TMZ’s source, the couple was accused of “different types of wrongdoing” during the talks, which the insider described as “a witch hunt.”
Robach was accused, among other things, of having alcoholic beverages in his locker area.
One insider, however, refuted the claim, telling the outlet that it was “crazy,” as the ABC executives had handed the bottles of liquor.
It was also “insanely” claimed that Robach showed up to work “drunk” after last year’s College Football National Championship.
As a bonus, some crew members felt “uncomfortable” shooting due to Robach’s romantic relationship with Holmes.
Page Six reached out to ABC for comment but has yet to hear back quickly.
After reviewing the situation at work for more than a month, ABC decided to part ways with the duo.
After their off-screen romance made headlines for the first time in November 2022, Robach and Holmes, who had worked together on “GMA3” since 2020, were suspended from employment.
They were very affectionate with one another during the investigation, especially when they were on a holiday trip to Miami and acting very much like teens.
In an exclusive report earlier this month, Page Six revealed that a source had predicted the pair’s dismissal.
Informed sources tell us that while T.J. and company “had not been terminated yet,” they likely won’t be seen on screen again. According to a source, “they do want Amy to stay and be a part of things there,” but not on “GMA3.”
In addition, we were informed that the two had “hired lawyers to deal with” the separation mentioned above negotiations.
A source told Page Six weeks earlier that Holmes was “sure” he would be cleared after ABC’s review.
Of course, the insider added that he’s taking [the investigation] seriously, but he’s confident he hasn’t done anything to warrant losing his job.
According to our other sources, the lengthy assessment was caused partly by ABC’s want to be “very careful” in the wake of the revelations of Holmes’s extramarital affair with Robach.
After the holidays, Page Six broke the exclusive story that Robach was not Holmes’ first office lover.
We heard that during his marriage to Marilee Fiebig, he had a three-year affair with Good Morning America producer Natasha Singh.
Holmes and Fiebig, both 45, had been married for nearly 13 years before Holmes filed for divorce on December 28. Sabine, their shared daughter, is nine years old now.
According to our source, immigration attorney Fiebig was “blindsided” by her husband’s affair with a coworker on the air.
As they prepared for the New York City Half Marathon in March 2022, rumors exist that Holmes and Robach started dating.
After remaining silent about the incident until January 4, Liebig finally addressed the situation in an official statement.
Divorce attorney Stephanie Lehman told the Daily Mail that Marilee’s “primary focus” during the holidays and in light of the difficult times had been the “overall best interest” of her 9-year-old daughter.
Lehman reaffirmed that she and Holmes’ attorney had been collaborating to “bring [Fiebig and Holmes’] divorce forward confidentially, promptly, and as peacefully as possible.”
Similarly, Robach was previously married to “Melrose Place” alum Andrew Shue, although the couple was rumored to be divorcing in December.
Between 1996 and 2008, she was wed to Tim McIntosh, a former Major League Baseball player. They have two daughters, Ava (born in 2002) and Analise (born in 2006).
