Lara Spencer was named co-anchor for ABC's "Good Morning America" in March, 2011. This is Spencer's second time at "GMA." She was previously the show's National Correspondent for 5 years, from 1999 to 2004.
Prior to rejoining GMA, Lara was the host of the popular syndicated television newsmagazine The Insider and was a regular contributor to CBS' The Early Show. Prior to joining The Early Show, Lara was a national correspondent for ABC's Good Morning America, and spent several years as a features and lifestyle reporter for WABC-TV.
Lara also has a lifelong passion (and talent) for finding bargains and treasures at flea markets, yard sales and thrift shops. She was the host of the PBS' Antiques Roadshow for the 2004 and 2005 seasons, as well as Antiques Roadshow FYI.
She also moonlights as a decorator for friends and family, including the remodel of comedian Kathy Griffin's house, and seen on Griffin's hit Bravo series My Life on the D-List. Lara's homes have been featured in numerous publications, including the Los Angeles Times.
In addition to delivering entertainment news, decorating, or dumpster diving--ahem, treasure hunting—she's is a published author. In her book, I Brake for Yard Sales, Lara shares her secrets for bargain hunting and tells you where to shop, what to look for, how to pay for it, how to restore it, and finally, where to put it in your house.
