ABC sources tell FTVLive that negotiations between ABC and Good Morning America Anchor Josh Elliott have started to turn nasty.
While ABC was about to get a deal done with Robin Roberts very quickly, that is not the case with Elliott.
Elliott joined GMA in almost 2 years ago and has been part of the team that helped the morning show knock the Today Show off as the leader.
Word is that Elliott's agent has been trying to drum up interest at other networks to help force ABC's hand.
While the two sides have been talking for the past few months, sources tell FTVLive that the negotiations have gotten much more tense the past few sessions.
