He’s the handsome gentleman who gives us our weather forecasts each day, and Sam Champion made his final appearance on “Good Morning America” today (December 4).

Champion’s colleagues Robin Roberts, Lara Spencer, Josh Elliott, and George Stephanopoulos presented him with a weather-themed cake and shared their memories of working with him over the years.

Roberts noted, "You are a Renaissance man. You encompass all that is good and right in this world and you show it each and every day when you show up here."

Elliott added, "I just want to say thank you because it's been a gift each and every day to work with you, Sam. A lot of people talk about our bromance. For me it was just a friendship. I promise there's happy on the inside, but the tears... aw, I'm going to miss you."

With tears welling up on the whole team, Sam replied, "This is a lot harder than I thought it would be. Let's just go to break."

Champion has accepted an offer to be an on-air talent at The Weather Channel.
