TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — A national morning news program will broadcast on Florida A&M University’s campus during homecoming week.
FAMU announced during its board of trustee meeting last week that ABC’s “Good Morning America” will broadcast live segments of the show on campus.
The broadcasts will be Friday, Oct. 28 at Bragg Memorial Stadium and Saturday, Oct. 29 during the FAMU Homecoming Parade.
Friday on ABC 27 Sunrise at 6:30 a.m., ABC 27’s Karah Bailey joins GMA's TJ Holmes on campus, as he gives the entire nation a taste of the Rattler Experience.
FAMU requests students and spectators that are interested in being part of the audience during "Good Morning America" Friday are asked to arrive at Bragg Memorial Stadium (1500 Wahnish Way) between 6 a.m. and 6:15 a.m. and do not bring or wear election campaign signs or shirts.

According to a news release by FAMU, a seven-member team came to Tallahassee and met with FAMU personnel about locations to stage segments of the show.
“The campus is absolutely gorgeous, and I have a very good feeling that GMA will have a wonderful experience for our segment here,” Danielle Librizzo a coordinating producer with Good Morning America said of the campus in a statement provided by FAMU.
