Sam Champion Totally Flubs Co-Worker Lara Spencer's Name on Air

There's nothing more embarrassing than mispronouncing a co-worker's name -- especially one you worked with for years.

"I did not! No!" Sam Champion said on ABC, when he was told he pronounced co-host Lara Spencer's name incorrectly during a broadcast.

"Hey, Laura! We're embracing just 'cause it's cold out here," Champion said.

"I just wanna die! I just wanna die!" he said, watching it back.

"Aw, it's OK!" Lara Spencer said as Champion hugged her.

Since "Good Morning America" meteorologist Sam Champion is back to cover for Ginger Zee while she's out on maternity leave, he's also back to his shenanigans.

Don't worry, Sam. You win some, you lose some -- and for all the rest, you just get some great Internet bloopers.
