Robin Roberts announced her big return to ABC’s Good Morning America within in a few weeks while she made a guest appearance on the morning news program Jan. 14. This came as a pleasant surprise to since the 52-year-old co-anchor said recently it wouldn’t be until spring she would be back on the air.
Doctors tell Roberts she’s doing so well, she’s ready to do what is called a “dry run.” Starting next week, Roberts will arrive at the ABC studio in the early morning and go in for makeup. Her condition will still be examined to see how well her body responds to being around other people. Her system is still recovering and baby steps have to be taken so she won’t have any kind of relapse.
When Roberts was on GMA Monday morning, she was going through the “process of re-entry.” She woke up at 4 a.m. and did the live interview to make her announcement.
Roberts didn’t specify an exact date as to when she would be on the morning news show, but she said it was a day meaningful to her. There’s some speculation that Feb. 26 is the date she’ll return to Good Morning America because that was the day she co-hosted ABC’s coverage of the 2012 Academy Awards and noticed feeling exhausted, the Los Angeles Times reports. That feeling prompted her to see her doctor, which later revealed she had MDS.
There’s no doubt that the day Robin Roberts returns to Good Morning America, ratings will go through the roof.
