GMA anchor Robin Roberts was all smiles on her first day back on the set since August. Roberts, 52, arrived at the ABC studios at 5 a.m. and sat at her desk in the middle of Times Square. A small crowd of well wishers were there with homemade signs to welcome Roberts back.
“Hi, it’s Robin, and I’ve been waiting 174 days to say this: Good morning, America!” she said. “I am so full of gratitude. I share this morning, this day of celebration, with everyone.”
President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama welcomed Roberts back in a pre-taped video.
“You’ve been an inspiration to all of us and we couldn’t be happier doing what you do best,” said the president. “It’s great to see you back in that chair and we’re all excited to start our morning with you once again.”
Mrs. Obama added: “We just want you to know that the whole Obama family – we’ve been thinking about you and praying for you and rooting for you every step of the way.”
