TJ also posted a similar photo on his own account, writing: "That’s genuine shock on my face. The non hugger-in-chief is on her way to Tokyo this weekend to cover the Olympics. Today was our final show together in studio for a while."

"We give each other all kinds of hell and talk all kinds of trash, but the truth is, Robes is the key and centerpiece to our show and I HATE when she’s gone. (It doubles my workload)," he joked.
