Robin Roberts: I’ll reveal my ‘Good Morning America’ plans ‘in next few days’
Plucky “Good Morning America” co-host Robin Roberts will reveal when she plans to return to the top-rated morning show, sometime “in the next few days,” she said Wednesday.
Roberts is expected to appear on “GMA” — via either a phone call, pretaped video or live satellite feed — to make her announcement, sources said.
In a Facebook post early Wednesday morning, Roberts, 52, said her doctors were pleased with her recovery and she was “humbled” by all the attention that has been lavished on when she will return to “GMA.”
There have been reports speculating that Roberts’ recovery was going slower than hoped, but ABC News officials and Roberts have set no public timetable for her return.
“I am getting stronger every day. I’m humbled by the speculation of my return to GMA. My family and I are grateful that GMA/ABC’s only concern is my full recovery. It’s a great comfort not to feel pressured and a BLESSING to know I have a job waiting for me. Unfortunately, not everyone in my situation can say that.”
Roberts is recovering from a bone-marrow transplant that she needed to treat a rare blood disorder.
She has been off the air since Aug. 30, but posting updates about her health status on her blog, Twitter and Facebook.
