Snyderman gets bigger GMA role

Medical reporter upped to back-up anchor status

NEW YORK — Dr. Nancy Snyderman is expanding her practice at “Good Morning America,” inking a new multiyear deal with ABC and assuming a new status as primary sub for anchor Lisa McRee.

Snyderman, a licensed doctor who’s been a “GMA” contributor since 1987, will continue to spend most of her time working as the ayem show’s medical reporter. She’ll also contribute to other ABC News broadcasts and work on primetime specials for the web under the auspices of the news division’s medical unit.

Most notably, Snyderman has been officially tapped as McRee’s chief substitute and will fill in for McRee on a regular basis. Snyderman did just that last week while McRee was on vacation.

Meanwhile, “GMA” is dispatching its anchors across the globe this week.

With Russia in crisis, co-anchor Kevin Newman will report from Moscow through Wednesday. McRee is also on foreign soil, having flown to London to cover the one-year anniversary of Princess Diana’s death for today’s broadcast.

McRee will return to New York in time for Tuesday’s broadcast.
