Mark your calendars: Robin Roberts is back!
ABC News says the Good Morning America co-host will head back to the anchor desk on Feb. 20, just five months to the day since her bone marrow transplant in September. She received the operation to treat the rare blood disorder MDS.
“What a difference a year makes,” she said in a statement. On her official Twitter page, Roberts expressed her excitement over her return and thanked fans for their prayers and support. She continued, “Heading to the beach to rest, reflect & count my blessings. XO.”
The 52-year-old personality was given the thumbs up by doctors after reaching a critical 100-day benchmark in December and began a series of “dry runs’ at the GMA studio in January.
Her last day on GMA was Aug. 30 before she started her medical leave.
We wish nothing but continued success for this phenomenal woman.
