Fans of the television program Good Morning America were up as early as 3 a.m. to catch a glimpse of the live taping at Discovery Green. The GMA Summer Tour stopped in Houston with co-hosts Michael Strahan – a native Houstonian and graduate of Westbury High School and Texas Southern University, weather anchor Ginger Zee and entertainment anchor Lara Spencer. Fans included the cheerleading squad from TSU along with members of nonprofits such as The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Houston and BakerRipley. The segment included a barbecue cook-off, an appearance by a 1,600-pound steer named Oliver and recognition of hometown hero Matthew Reel – a 12 year old who is creating a movement empowering students to feed the homeless. Mayor Sylvester Turner declared July 10, 2019 “Matthew Reel Day” in honor of the student’s service to the city. Pictured are mother-daughter duo (from left) Annie and Sophie Polasek, who watch GMA every morning. They were thrilled to be part of the audience, and Sophie even snapped a selfie with Zee.
