"We respect her decision to accept this exciting opportunity and wish her every success in her new job," she says.
"We are grateful for all of [Spencer's] contributions since day one of 'The Insider,'" says Bell Blue.
ABC News president Ben Sherwood added in an e-mail to the ABC staff, "In this new role, Lara will bring her well-known and much admired versatility and vitality to a broad range of 'GMA' stories."Spencer's former position at 'The Insider' has been taken over by 'Entertainment Tonight' correspondent Kevin Frazier.
