NEW YORK (AP) -- ABC News has signed George Stephanopoulos to a contract extension, the last member of its "Good Morning America" team to agree to a new deal.

ABC News said Thursday that Stephanopoulos will remain as Robin Roberts' chief partner on the top-rated morning show, and will continue as host on the Sunday morning show "This Week." Terms were not disclosed.

Roberts also recently signed a contract extension. "Good Morning America" has not been entirely successful in keeping together the team that toppled NBC's "Today" show: Sam Champion left for a job at The Weather Channel and Josh Elliott is now at NBC Sports. In recent months, the show replaced Champion with Ginger Zee and Elliott with Amy Robach, promoted Lara Spencer and added Michael Strahan as a contributor.
