It’s Official! ‘GMA’ Announces Robin Roberts Return Date
She’s back! ABC News says Robin Roberts will be back on the job at the “Good Morning America” anchor desk on Feb. 20, 5 months to the day since she underwent a bone marrow transplant to treat myelodysplastic syndrome or MDS, a rare blood disorder. Robin was scheduled to return in June, and had hoped for an even earlier return and now it’s official!
“What a difference a year makes,” said Roberts, who began feeling the symptoms of her illness about a year ago. “I cannot wait to return to my GMA family. It’s going to be an incredible morning in Times Square. The overwhelming thoughts and prayers of the viewers have played a major part in getting me here today. I cannot thank everyone enough.”
The official announcement was made Thursday on “GMA” after Roberts received the all-clear from her doctors.
We’re so happy for Robin.
