News Anchor Sam Champion and his husband Rubem Robierb tied the knot in 2012 in an intimate ceremony in the former’s New York City apartment. The pair have been happy ever since. The gay couple got married in front of their close friends and colleagues. And now, after almost three years of their nuptials, the fans and media alike are curious to know what’s next for this perfect pair.
There have been several speculations about Champion and his partner and most of their fans want to know if they have any plans on adopting kids any time soon. But here’s the news! As far as we know, the couple has no such plans. Despite the rumors and speculations, Champion and Robierb are not thinking of adopting a child at the moment. Why? Because they both have their career in front of them and we all know how Champion lost his job in ABC Network and at this critical moment, we can’t expect them to take in a baby in their family, can we?
The American weatherman ditched his 25 years long career in ABC and left the network’s much loved show “Good Morning America” in 2013 and tried his luck with his own morning show titled America’s Morning Headquarters in NBC owned The Weather Channel. Unfortunately, he failed miserably and once again tried his best to return back to ABC News. But, he was unwelcomed as there was no place for him anymore.
Champion had most probably left the popular network for more fame, money and power in his hand. But that’s not what happened. He didn’t get what he sought. But instead he was dissed and dubbed a fame-seeker and money-hungry as he left GMA at the height of his popularity.
The representative of ABC Network even commented saying: “We love Sam and he’ll always be part of the ABC family, but we’ve got the best weather team in the business already in place.” So this meant that Mr. Perfectionist never should have left his place and position on the first place.
You would not believe how much Champion’s salary was. He was being paid around $2 million annually and several source reported that he was quite pissed off by the Network’s attitude towards him. One of the source even revealed: “He left ‘GMA’ for this job with tons of promises, including getting a percentage of merchandise sold with his name on it — umbrellas, boots, hats, etc. None of it happened.”
So, as he is going through several ups and downs, one can’t expect him and his partner to adopt a kid at this critical situation when Champion has lost his 25 year old job. But don’t worry, once everything is settled career-wise for him and his fine arts photographer, they would surely think things through and give us some good news.
