New York - Robin Roberts returns to “Good Morning America" Wednesday after undergoing a bone marrow transplant to treat a rare blood disorder, and says she has imagined the moment she will take her seat in the anchor chair again.
“I have visualized this moment,” Roberts, 52, told her “GMA” co-anchors.“It’s something like this, looking into Sam’s blue eyes. …I love how we’re sitting, how we would be sitting. …But I know when I sit back down, right in this chair, and I look over and I see you and I see you and I see you and I see you, it’s gonna be, all is right in the world. And it’s gonna seem like no time has passed at all.”
Roberts’ comeback to “GMA” is five months to the day since she underwent a bone marrow transplant to treat MDS - a rare blood disorder, and a year after she began to first feel the symptoms of her illness.
In a preview of the conversation with George Stephanopoulos, Josh Elliott, Lara Spencer and Sam Champion that took place a few weeks ago, Roberts opened up to them about her recovery, her return and admits to a case of the jitters.
“I haven’t done live television since the end of August,” Roberts said, “So I’m a little bit nervous, … but you got my back, … that’s what I’m not nervous about. … I know that you have my back.”
