NEW YORK (AP) — Lara Spencer is leaving television’s “The Insider” to return to ABC News.

The network said Thursday that Spencer will be the new “lifestyle anchor” on “Good Morning America.”

ABC News President Ben Sherwood said Spencer will focus on family and health issues, along with entertainment and celebrity coverage. Spencer will also appear on other ABC News broadcasts, like “Nightline.”

Spencer worked at “Good Morning America” as a national correspondent from 1999 to 2003, before leaving to join the syndicated entertainment news show. She’ll be moving back to New York from Los Angeles for her new job.
