Robin Roberts will be anchoring Good Morning America remotely, beginning on March 25, due to coronavirus concerns. Per Deadline, Roberts has several pre-existing medical conditions that put her at increased risk for illness.
A breast cancer survivor, the journalist also was diagnosed with the blood disorder myelodysplastic syndrome a few years ago. Roberts will have an in-home studio from which she will broadcast.
Roberts' doctor, Dr. Gail Roboz, appeared on Tuesday's GMA. The anchor told her doc:
I heard your advice and because of what is going on in New York City, this will be my last day in the studio for a little bit and I will do like everyone else. It is hard to leave because you want the normalcy. You want it not just for yourself but for our viewers.
