Report: 'Good Morning America' host Josh Elliott in trouble over on-set outburts

“Good Morning America” co-anchor Josh Elliott met with ABC top brass last week to discuss his behavior on-set and conflicts with “GMA” staffers, sources tell The Post's Page Six.
Elliott had the sit-down with a top producer about his “lashing out” at the crew over frustrations about scripts.
“He’s being gossiped about in the media, and Josh is lashing out in a passive-aggressive way,” an insider told The Post. “They’re concerned about his behavior and trying to come up with a game plan. He’s a popular anchor, and they want to stop the gossip and focus on developing his talent.”
Reports have surfaced about Elliott having rough relationships on the set. In August, a show insider told Page Six: “Josh yells at staffers, including his own writers, saying things like, ‘Who the [bleep] wrote this?’ — while he is miked-up, so everyone in the studio can hear.”
But another ABC source told The Post: “There was a meeting last week to talk about what kind of series the execs would like Josh to work on, and ramping up some additional editorial support for him. This was an editorial meeting, period.”
