George Stephanopoulos may be a giant in the news business, but “Good Morning America” has changed its set to cover up his diminutive size.
“He’s 5-foot-6 and is dwarfed by human trees Robin Roberts and Michael Strahan,” says an insider. “ ‘GMA’ initially thought using an anchor desk with elevated chairs would help the problem. Still awkward, George’s little-boyish mini-legs were seen dangling.”
So a month ago, a silver panel was added across from the anchor desk at midlevel, covering up where Stephanopoulos’ feet rested on his chair, which up to then had been “visible and awkward.”
Reportedly, Stephanopoulos is 5-foot-7, Roberts is 5-foot-10, and Strahan is a whopping 6-foot-5. Height has been an ongoing issue on the ABC show.
