New ‘Insider’ reporter continues ‘Roadshow’

Spencer officially resigns from 'America' to join syndie strip

NEW YORK — Lara Spencer, the New York anchor of “The Insider,” Paramount Domestic’s new syndie showbiz magazine, will continue to host the PBS primetime series “Antiques Roadshow.”

As a self-styled “antiques junkie,” Spencer said her obsession could help her break the ice as she interviews celebs passionate about antiques.

Spencer has officially resigned as national correspondent for “Good Morning America” to take the job on “Insider,” which premieres Sept. 13.

Feeding on the trend of more movies and TV shows originating in New York, Spencer said she expects to get a lot of air time on “The Insider,” to be hosted out of L.A. by Pat O’Brien.

While Par’s “Entertainment Tonight” “does 17-19 segments each half-hour,” she said, “Insider” will do “seven to nine. But there are no hard-and-fast rules. If a huge story breaks, it could take over the entire show.”

Spencer focused on lighter stories during her five-year stint as a reporter for “Good Morning America.” Before “GMA,” she was a lifestyle reporter for WABC-TV New York’s “Eyewitness News” from 1995-99. She started her career as a reporter for WDEF-TV Chattanooga, Tenn.
