Good Morning Texas announced a new co-host thing morning.  Joining Amy Vanderoef at the helm of ABC's highly-rated morning show will be former One Life to Live television star, 4 time Emmy nominated talk show host and Frisco resident, Ty Treadway! 

According to the WFAA website, in 2000, after several supporting film roles, Ty landed the role of Dr. Colin MacIver on the ABC soap opera One Life to Live.  Ty's heartfelt portrayal of Colin quickly became a fan favorite before his character was eventually killed off. He soon returned to the show as Colin's nicer twin brother, Troy MacIver.  Ty has appeared on One Life to Live on and off from 2000 - 2008.

In June 2002, Ty was asked to host his own talk show, Soap Talk on the SoapNet cable channel alongside his co-host Lisa Rinna.  His hard work was rewarded with numerous awards including 4 Daytime Emmy nominations for Best Talk Show Host. 

During this time, Ty and long time girlfriend Monica got engaged at the Eiffel Tower.  They married in 2003 atop a volcano on the island of Santorini, Greece.  Two years later they welcomed their first child, Samantha, in February 2005.  Their second child, a son named Ryder, was born March 7, 2006.

In March 2006 the series American Idol Extra debuted, featuring Treadway as host.  Treadway interviewed various American Idol personalities, including Chris Daughtry, Katherine McPhee and eventual American Idol winner, Taylor Hicks.  He also chatted with such music legends as Kenny Rogers, Barry Manilow, Rod Stewart, David Foster and Andrea Bocelli.

In April 2007, Ty was personally chosen by television great Merv Griffin himself, creator of Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy, to host Merv's new nationally syndicated game show Merv Griffin's Crosswords.

We wish Ty the best of luck with his new role on GMT!
