(Newser) – Food-focused talk show The Chew is getting spit off the air to make way for a third hour of Good Morning America, ABC announced Wednesday, though that hour is actually in the afternoon. It will air at 1pm Eastern, with the anchors to be announced in the future, reports the Los Angeles Times. Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos and Michael Strahan currently co-anchor the 7am to 9am slot. The Chew, which is ending production in June, has been on the air since 2011. Its highest-profile host, chef Mario Batali, was fired in December over allegations that he harassed female employees at his restaurants; Batali is also currently under investigation over the alleged sexual assault of a former employee. The three remaining hosts have each addressed the show's cancellation online, per Deadline.
