'Good Morning America' Co-Anchor Suddenly Leaves in the Middle of the Show NY Post
One of the co-anchors of ABC’s "Good Morning America" made an announcement in the middle of the show Tuesday morning that she wasn’t feeling well and was leaving the show, the New York Post reports.
Robin Roberts, who is undergoing chemotherapy to prepare for a bone marrow transplant this fall, made the announcement around 8:10 a.m. Roberts told viewers, "A full disclosure here, I’m not feeling too well. I’m going to leave and let you do the rest of the program on your own."
Roberts added: “I’m going to take a little time off to get some vacay.”
As previously reported, Roberts was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome, or MDS, and will receive a bone-marrow donation from her sister.
"GMA" will use substitute co-hosts during her absence while she gets the transplant, including Barbara Walters and Katie Couric.
