Robin Roberts Planning Return to 'Good Morning America' (Video)

By Lindsay Barton,

Robin Roberts announced her plan to return to Good Morning America this morning.

In June, Roberts announced her diagnosis with MDS, a rare blood and bone marrow disease. She underwent a bone marrow transplant in September and took medical leave. Viewers have been able to follow her recovery through video messages appearing on GMA.

Roberts teased her return last week with a tweet that said she would be seeing her viewers “VERY soon.”

“I’m coming home,” she said. “We’re talking now a matter of weeks, not months.”

Her tests appeared normal, giving her the green light to return to work. Her co-hosts and crew applauded after she made the announcement. Roberts was excited to share the news, but is still following doctors’ orders because of the flu season.

Roberts said returning to GMA will be an adjustment, especially waking up early.

“I have to get back on ‘GMA’ time…That’s one thing I have not missed is that alarm clock,” she said.

She will visit the Times Square studio next week to rearrange her schedule. Roberts will follow the 4:00 a.m. wake-up call and prepare for the show, but will not appear on air right away.
