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.”
