According to PageSix, the couple is planning to run the race this year, even though their names aren’t on the public list of celebrities.
The source said that they will be among the 25,000 runners racing on Sunday.
But, will compete “under the radar.”
TJ ran his first marathon with Amy last November.
According to the outlet, other notable names slated to run this year are Giants legend Tiki Barber, and reality TV stars Andi Dorfman and Peter Weber.
Amy and TJ were fired from GMA after their affair was made public in November 2022.
Now, they are planning a comeback with the race and their new TV show.
TO THE NEXT
Amy and TJ have pitched the idea for a new talk show that would rival Live With Kelly and Mark, one month after their firing.
Now Amy, 50, and TJ, 45, have decided to pitch an idea for a new “up close and personal” talk show to CBS, NBC, and CNN, the DailyMail revealed.
According to the outlet, the couple is “aggressively” pitching a new program that will show off not only their on-air talent but also their “chemistry.”
Though most of the plans have not been revealed, sources say they are suggesting an “up close and personal” chat to give the networks a daytime TV push.
Their approach to pitch themselves as a couple is timely considering the recent announcement that Kelly Ripa will be joined on Live by her husband Mark Consuelos after Ryan Seacrest‘s departure.
One TV executive told the DailyMail: “Think about it. You have a show with two attractive hosts that does pretty well and then boom – the sexy romantic drama of the decade unfolds with your two stars.
“Who wouldn’t want to watch them interact every day – see those sparks fly?”
A media expert claimed that Amy and TJ’s future TV show will be absolute “ratings gold”– but there will be challenges.
Human resources pro Jason Greer exclusively told The U.S. Sun that Amy and TJ’s future series will pull in viewers with hot topics and also their red-hot chemistry.
The couple would need tight guidance from an HR professional, Jason said of the still legally married former co-hosts’ hopes to land a new program as a duo.
“I would have a lot of training with both Amy and TJ about respectful behavior in the workplace.
“Even though we’re talking about chemistry, there are millions of dollars that have been put into your show, and into the salaries of the people who support your show.
“So it’s really important that we don’t make them feel uncomfortable.”
“We have to give a code of conduct not only for the hosts but most importantly, to also protect the staff.”
“Often it comes down to: What are we going to do to make sure that we have a plan in case everything breaks down between the two in terms of their relationship.”
Jason added that the allure of an Amy and TJ ratings boom for a network could entice execs to navigate the HR hurdles.
“For as many political and legal landmines exist in this situation, it’s still very doable.
“You would need to build a robust HR system around it with constant check-ins, where you have to rigidly keep your finger on the pulse and know what employees are feeling and the dynamics backstage.
“If you can do that, you can make it work.”
Jason continued: “They would need a strong EAP or employee assistance program.
“Not the typical EAP – where it’s a number you call and you may or may not get someone.”
“You want a person or a team of people who are backstage at least two or three times a week.
“It’s going to be an added cost, but if you are a network, you want to make sure your multimillion-dollar investment is properly cared for.”
Jason concluded: “They would be ratings gold- that’s the alluring part about it all. I’m going to watch!”
