After a weekend of calling fellow horse owners "cowards" and "cheaters" for running fresh entrants in the Belmont Stakes, California Chrome co-owner Steve Coburn said Monday that he needed to apologize "to the world," including the connections of winner Tonalist. Appearing on "Good Morning America" with his wife, Carolyn, Coburn told host Robin Roberts that "I'm very ashamed of myself. " California Chrome was trying to become the 12 th Triple Crown winner in Saturday's Belmont, but he finished tied for fourth . Tonalist, a horse who skipped the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes because he spiked a fever before the Derby, won a close race over Commissioner, another horse who didn't run in the first two legs of the Triple Crown.

It was the dogs that peeved William Tongue, 68, not the other wrinkles in his routine brought by Good Morning America broadcasting from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. yesterday at Annapolis' City Dock. Traffic being routed away from downtown made parking difficult, but Tongue didn't complain about having a longer walk to the Market House where he meets three fellow Annapolis retirees so frequently that many call them The Committee. He even liked the unusual energy in the air produced by the crowd of more than 200 who braved the rain with dolled-up children and poster-board signs in hopes of appearing on national television.

Good Morning America's Robin Roberts returned to the anchor desk this morning, five months after taking temporary leave for a bone marrow transplant. Her welcome back included a video message from President Obama. "I keep pinching myself and I realize this is real," Roberts said about her return. Roberts had to get the transplant after doctors diagnosed her with the rare condition myelodysplastic syndromes, or MDS. MDS is a group of disorders that cause the bone marrow to produce an inadequate number of helathy red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.

ANNAPOLIS - By the dock outside Phillips restaurant, ABC News producers Yael Lavie and Robert Wheelock are standing back to back, separated by a dozen yards and the bleating of cell phones. To the right, Police Sgt. Paul Gibbs is showing Wheelock where it might be possible to stage an enormous tug-of-war game that would span the harbor. To the left, a gaggle of local publicists and tourism representatives are flooding Lavie with suggestions about who should appear on TV - a woman from a Renaissance fair, a man who raises terrapins, an underground band.

Out with the new, and in with the old.That's the plan, as of yesterday anyway, at ABC News for reviving its troubled "Good Morning America" show.In a major overhaul, two anchors and an executive producer were dumped yesterday to be replaced on an interim basis starting Jan. 18 by former "GMA" host Charles Gibson and Diane Sawyer, of the "20/20" newsmagazine. Sawyer's return to mornings, where she worked as co-host of "CBS This Morning" from 1981 to 1984, is one of the more surprising turns taken of late by the revolving chairs at the morning show.

The news that Charles Gibson will be leaving Good Morning America to anchor World News Tonight solves one problem for ABC but raises another. Gibson's departure this week opens a spot at Good Morning America just when the show's producers were hoping to have a solid team in place to battle NBC's powerhouse Today show, which will lose longtime co-anchor Katie Couric after Wednesday. As soon as Gibson's move was announced last week, speculation erupted about the future of the show, a perennial runner-up to Today.

With the release of yesterday's report, the pressure mounts for CBS to find a replacement for longtime anchor Dan Rather. The leading contenders: CBS White House correspondent John Roberts has been a favorite since Rather announced last fall that he would step down in March. Scott Pelley, correspondent for 60 Minutes Wednesday, is thought to be Rather's choice. NBC's Katie Couric, co-anchor of the Today show, has the kind of ratings power the network would like. ABC's Diane Sawyer, co-anchor of Good Morning America and a former 60 Minutes star, still has friends in high places at CBS.

For the programmers at WMAR, Channel 2, the decision was simple: Stick with its noon newscast, airing at a time when the audience is stagnant, if not falling, or be the first Baltimore station to expand its morning news program all the way to 10 o'clock. "There's an old baseball adage, hit 'em where they ain't," WMAR news director Peggy Phillip said of Friday's announcement that the station would be dropping its low-rated noon news and adding a third hour to its morning show. "This didn't grow of thinking, 'Let's do something different with our noon news.

When her children were young, Jenny Lauck flipped on Today or Good Morning America as she brewed her morning coffee and tended her babies. But several years ago, the 34-year-old mother of three stopped watching the morning shows. After getting TiVo, she had no patience to sit through multiple commercial breaks during a live newscast. On top of that, the segments seemed frivolous. "Watching morning television for me is the equivalent of reading People magazine in the dentist's office," said Lauck, who writes for Web sites from her home in Santa Rosa, Calif.

Still reeling from the death of anchorman Peter Jennings and the loss since last year of nearly a million viewers, ABC will aim the network's flagship World News Tonight in a new direction. Beginning Monday, Good Morning America co-host Charles Gibson will be at the helm and current co-anchor Elizabeth Vargas will leave the evening newscast. ABC's moves, announced yesterday, signal an acute departure from the course initially set by News President David Westin, who in December named Vargas, 43, and Bob Woodruff, 44, as Jennings' successors, dubbing them co-anchors "for the digital age."
