Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes are opening up about their relationship for the first time since they were fired as anchors on Good Morning America.

On Tuesday (December 5), the pair launched the first episode of their joint podcast "Amy and T.J.," per People.

Holmes described the couple as "the folks who lost the jobs we love because we love each other."

"That is the bottom line and that is why we are here now," he added.

Robach said that the podcast is "the first time we get to say what happened and where we are today.” She added that they've "gone through a year of hell" together.

"In the end, all of us are always rooting for love," Robach said. "It doesn’t always happen when you want it to happen. And it's undeniable when it’s real and it’s something you have to navigate and it’s not easy."

The December 5 podcast debut comes exactly one year after ABC News President Kim Godwin told the Robach and Holmes that they would be going on hiatus as news of their romance surfaced.

"Today is a special day. It’s almost apropos that we would have this podcast air on December 5th because December 5th last year, exactly one year ago today, was the day we were told not to come into work," Robach said on the podcast.

"We never got a follow-up call to say come back," Holmes said with Robach adding, "That’s true. It was the opposite.”

News of Robach and Holmes' romance first surfaced in November 2022. The two were accused of cheating on their partners as Robach hadn't confirmed her separation from husband Andrew Shue, nor Holmes with his wife Marilee Fiebig.

On their new podcast, Holmes shut down speculation that they had an affair.

“To be clear, we were outed as being in a relationship, but everyone else thought we were being outed as adulterers — being outed as cheating on our spouses — and it wasn’t the case because the odd thing is, the day those pictures were taken and the day that article was released, we both at that point were in divorce proceedings," he said.

Holmes jokingly added that the couple considered calling their podcast Scandal-less "because this was the scandal that wasn't."
