NEW YORK, April 18 (UPI) -- Good Morning America anchor Lara Spencer has been promoted to co-host of the morning show, ABC News President James Goldston announced.

Spencer joins Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos as co-hosts.

"A key member of our on-air team, Lara Spencer, rejoined ABC three years ago -- bringing her style, humor, sunny confidence, wonderful journalism and storytelling to GMA," he said in a release. "Lara is clearly an essential ingredient in the success we have enjoyed and I am so pleased to announce that Lara has been elevated to co-host of the program along with Robin and George."

Spencer joined GMA in 2011 as the show's lifestyle anchor. Her new deal will net her $3 million a year.

The move comes after news reader Josh Elliot left the show last month and Sam Champion departed in December.
