During a walk in Miami Beach, Florida, Champion went on Instagram Live to chat with his fans, which is when he shared why he came out of retirement in June 2019.
He explained that he was not on the GMA stage in New York City on Saturday because he was on a “vacation day” but it was more of a “normal day” for him.
“I work four days a week now,” Champion said in the video. “But that’s because I came out of retirement.”
The weatherman then explained that he returned to the show “because I was a little bored and Channel 7 offered me the option and I didn’t want to work a full week,” he said.
Champion also revealed some more personal things about his appearance like how he has endured a lot of sun damage.
“Sun damage ages you,” he said.
“My mom is what 86 now and her skin looks so much better than my skin.”
The GMA hunk said this was because of the abundant amount of time he’s been out in the sun over the years.
His mom “was against me being out for as much as I am so there are prices to be paid for that,” Champion said.
In the video, Champion also mentioned how he was trying to get back into working out after the slump he had during Covid.
One of the things that Champion said he was doing to get his body back is taking long walks, which he was doing while recording the video.
One fan wrote: “What a gorgeous view for a walk!” referring to the Miami Beach coast where Champion was.
“The post Covid return to workout struggle is real here, too. Keep at it, you look fabulous!!”
Another fan wrote: “Long walks ? What a great idea.”
