A familiar face will join Good Morning America next week.

Sam Champion, who joined GMA in 2006 and left in 2013 for a new role with The Weather Channel, is stepping in to help while Ginger Zee is out on maternity leave.

Zee gave birth to Adrian Benjamin in December.

"Thanks for helping out @RobMarciano and @SamChampion -- I'll be back before y'all know it!" Zee tweeted on Monday.

You can watch GMA weekdays right after ABC15 Mornings from 4:30 a.m. - 7 a.m.
