“I have been waiting 174 days to say this: Good morning, America!”
On Wednesday, Robin Roberts returned to the anchor chair at Good Morning America — after leaving several months ago to undergo treatment for M.D.S., a rare blood disorder.
“I keep pinching myself,” Roberts said, as colleagues welcomed her back with applause and well wishes. “This is actually happening.”
“Faith, family, and friends brought me to this moment,” Roberts said. “I am so full of gratitude.”
She went on to thank everyone from family, friends, and colleagues, to her doctors and “those who have blazed the trail before me.”
“I share this morning, this day of celebration, with everyone,” Roberts said.
