GMA's Sam Champion and artist Rubem Robierb celebrate marriage with Miami Beach reception


Good Morning America weather anchor Sam Champion and Miami artist Rubem Robierb on Monday celebrated their New York marriage on Dec. 21 with a New Year's Eve reception in Miami Beach.

MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts, himself newly married to Patrick Abner, performed a brief wedding ceremony at the Beach reception, which was attended Monday night by the grooms' mothers and about 100 friends and other family members.

Local TV newsmen Craig Stevens (WSVN co-anchor) and Chad Matthews (WTVJ’s assistant news director) toasted the new husbands; theater producer-director Richard Jay-Alexander and vocalist Nicole Henry sang.

“I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was nervous. I don’t perform for a living,” says Jay-Alexander, who just co-directed Barbra Streisand’s sold-out North America tour. “I was thrilled to perform for Rubem and Sam. It felt very, very good and every word that came out of my mouth was utterly sincere. I felt privileged to be there.”
