After a test run, all systems are ready to go for Robin Roberts' return to "Good Morning America."
The veteran anchor made the special announcement Thursday morning that she'd be returning to the anchor desk Feb. 20 after undergoing a bone marrow transplant to treat the rare blood disorder, myelodysplastic syndrome.
"What a difference a year makes," she said in a statement. "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."
While Roberts will work an abridged schedule, GMA weatherman Sam Champion said they'll eventually get her back to the five-day grind.
Till then, the 52-year-old will be taking a restful vacation. "Can't wait to be back Feb 20th to thank everyone for their prayers and support," she tweeted. "Heading to the beach to rest, reflect & count my blessings."
