    Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes are sitting out Good Morning America - at least for the time being.

    In the wake of their alleged romantic affair going public, ABC News President Kim Godwin reportedly informed staffers that the two would "be off air while network figures out how to best handle situation," and that their relationship had become an "internal and external distraction".

    "I want to say that while the relationship is not a violation of company policy, I really have taken the last few days to think about and work through what I think is best for the ABC News organization," said Godwin on a staff call. "These decisions are not easy, they are not kneejerk, but they are necessary for the brand and for our priority which you guys know are all of us, the people here at ABC." 

    Robach and Holmes host the third hour of Good Morning AmericaGMA3: What You Need to Know. Last month, photos of the two spending time together in upstate New York went public, prompting Robach and Holmes to deactivate their Instagram accounts. They are both married. 

    Gio Benitez and Stephanie Ramos will fill in Monday, with further plans to be announced.
