Tim Tebow On ‘Good Morning America’: Former Football Star Joins As Contributor
Tim will start in his new role on Sept. 15, where he’ll “appear in the GMA studio and in cities across the U.S. as he launches GMA‘s ‘Motivate Me Monday’ series, which spotlights individuals and their stories of triumph,” says The Hollywood Reporter.
This isn’t Tim’s first time in broadcasting, nor is this his first time on GMA. In Dec. 2013, he was hired by ABC-owned ESPN as an NCAA analyst, making his debut on the 2014 BCS Championship Game in January. Later that month, he co-hosted GMA prior to Super Bowl XLVIII where he was joined by New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning.
Tim Tebow Famous In The NCAA & NFL For His Outspoken Christian Values
While Tim was thrust into the public eye when he was drafted to the Broncos in 2010, his outspoken Christian values made him a particularly famous figure in the NCAA, as well. For example, he would paint biblical verses on his eye black. The practice brought so much attention that after Tim left the University of Florida, the NCAA banned the practice of painting messages (something Reggie Bush would do, as well).
As a member of the Broncos and later the New York Jets, a fan coined the term “Tebowing” for Tim’s frequent habit of kneeling in prayer on the field when scored a touchdown, got a first down, or basically anything, really.
While he got signed to the New England Patriots in 2012, he was dropped before the season started and stayed on only as a practice squad/offseason member of the team.
