On August 8, Harris announced he would depart the network in two months to focus on his meditation company.

“This was a difficult decision for me. As some of you may know, I’ve been spending a lot of time on my extracurricular gig, my side hustle, a meditation company, called Ten Percent Happier," Harris said.

During his announcement, Harris called Good Morning America "one of the highlights of my life."

"My colleagues, both on and off the air, have become like a family," he said.

"I really do love these people, and I am going to miss them horribly.”
