Robin Roberts


Robin Roberts is almost ready to return to the anchor chair!

Good Morning America announced Thursday that Roberts will return to the show as of Feb. 20.

Following a successful bone-marrow transplant in September 2012 to treat myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare blood disorder, Roberts, 52, took a medical leave.

After a "dry run" at work in January, Roberts was given the go signal from her doctors to return to work later this month.

"What a difference a year makes," Roberts said. "I cannot wait to return to my GMA family. It's going to be an incredible morning in Times Square. The overwhelming thoughts and prayers of the viewers have played a major part in getting me here today. I cannot thank everyone enough."

She later took to Twitter to muse about her comeback before adding: "Heading to the beach to rest, reflect & count my blessings. XO"

We're excited for her return!
