The T.V. news world is all abuzz after news broke that Steve Harvey will be joining ABC’s “Good Morning America” as a contributor beginning Wednesday, August  19.

Some professional journos have even argued that Harvey took a job from an unemployed journo, and others have argued that Harvey is simply a celebrity contributor in the vain of Mo Rocca on CBS Sunday Morning and D.L. Hughley on the short-lived “D.L. Hughley Breaks The News.”

Harvey is expected to contribute a series of reports on a variety of topics including relationships and parenting.

He’s also expected to interact with viewers via ABCNews.com and with Skype.

Harvey Skyed in to a Disney event at the National Association of Black Journalists annual Career Fair and Convention in Tampa back on August 6.

Harvey also collaborates on a project with ABC’s parent company Disney called “Disney’s Dreamers Academy.”

St. Pete Times media reporter Eric Deegans asks does Harvey’s hiring even matter?
