4 months ago
Following a bone marrow transplant, Roberts is expected to transition back to her anchor role.
Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts has returned to the set of Good Morning America for the first time since undergoing a bone marrow transplant in September. It was just last year when she announced to viewers that she had myelodysplastic sysdrome, a rare blood and bone marrow disease. Now, the ABC anchor is making a steady transition back to her role.
“My doctors want me to see how many people I actually come into contact with,” she explained. “My vision is still a little blurry from the treatment. All of this is getting better day by day so that is the next step. Roberts has been off air since the end of August. Her 5 a.m. call time at the studio was the first in a serious of dry runs before making a full return. “I have a date in mind that is very important to me,” she said. “But I will ultimately listen to what my doctors say and what they recommend.” (Entertainment Weekly)
