Robin Roberts' 'GMA' sick leave plans - Philly
"I'm not going anywhere! I'm staying right here!" joked Robin Roberts Thursday when a reporter asked how ABC's "Good Morning America" would be handling her absence from the show while she undergoes her upcoming bone-marrow transplant. In a satellite interview that included her "GMA" co-workers, Roberts, who announced in June that she'd been diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome, a blood disorder that sometimes leads to leukemia, told reporters at the Television Critics Association's summer meetings that she expects the transplant to occur toward the end of the summer, "most likely the end of August, early September."
