Our Robin returning to GMA

The first robin of spring this year will be Robin Roberts of "Good Morning America," who will return to coanchor the ABC show on Feb. 20. This will mark the latest triumphant step in Roberts's extraordinary recovery from bone marrow transplant surgery, which she underwent Sept. 20 as treatment for myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). She contracted that rare blood disorder as a delayed side effect from breast cancer treatment several years earlier. RELATED: ROBIN ROBERTS VISITS 'GMA' STUDIO FOR TEST RUN The "Good Morning America" team made the official announcement or her return Thursday, saying Roberts's doctors have cleared her and she has quietly been doing "dry runs" in the studio. "What a difference a year makes," said Roberts, who began feeling the symptoms of her illness about a year ago. "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." Roberts has been a regular presence on the show through her recovery, taping occasional messages while her cohosts provided regular updates on her encouraging progress.
