ABC’s Good Morning America weatherman Sam Champion officially walked out of the closet this week and announced his engagement to South Florida artist Rubem Robierb!
The 51-year-old Champion, who once owned a weekend condo with another man in Miami Beach’s Biscayne Point, is believed to be preparing for a New Year’s Eve wedding to the 35-year-old fine-arts photographer Robierb in South Beach.
Champion outed himself in what appeared to be an off-the-cuff quote to the New York Times. ABC issued a statement, saying the two were introduced by friends in Miami several years ago.
Robierb, according to his bio, hails from Brazil. A poet at first, he progressively moved into visual arts.
