‘Good Morning America’ Co-Anchor Suddenly Leaves in the Middle of the Show

Aug 1, 2012  •  Post A Comment

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.

  1. She must have been feeling bad to leave so suddenly. I rarely watch GMA due to work, but Robin Roberts seems like a real trooper.

  2. Robin’s a class act and I wish a few times at ESPN Classics and she’s an outstanding person a her a speedy recovery.

  3. “Taking some vacay?” Using words like that certainly warrant a vacation from that show for ever and EVR, Sistah.

  4. Yes, taking some vacay. She wasn’t feeling well. She’s on meds. She’s under a great deal of stress. She is living her illness publicly, and promoting awareness for so many others. She’s a really trooper. Why don’t you take a “vacay” from being an utter asshole.

  5. I wish this site had a Like button, because you nailed it perfectly, Chico.
    Get a grip, William Bryant. The woman is dealing with some major issues. Why don’t you climb off your high horse some time and see what it’s like, moron?
