Say What?! Ann Romney To Co-Host Good Morning America

Ann Romney, the wife of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, is to host Good Morning America, it was announced today. It will be the 63-year old's television debut, and will take place October 10th 2012, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The news comes after her husband's strong performance at the first presidential debate last night (October 4th 2012) when Mr. Romney gave a solid and popular speech in support of his right wing politics. It was also revealed today that Good Morning America is performing well in the ratings table, but more importantly, it is out performing its primary rival, The Today Show. Last month, GMA averaged nearly 5.1 million viewers, while Today averaged around 4.3 million, according to Nielsen ratings. The inclusion of Mrs. Romney will only boost those figures as the election race heats up, and people want to see what the potential White House residents are like. Romney will guest-host the morning program alongside Roberts' co-anchor George Stephanopoulos and correspondents Lara Spencer, Josh Elliott and Sam Champion.

She is following in Michelle Obama's impressive TV appearance list. The President's wife has appeared on shows like Ellen and Sesame Street, and ABC News also has been in discussions with first lady to guest-host the program. The relative TV cameos give the perfect opportunity to promote their husband's credentials for the biggest job in the world, so expect to see plenty of this kind of thing over the coming months.
