Good Morning American News Anchor, Robin Roberts, Comes Out While Recovering From Bone Marrow Transplant

Recommended Posts


Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts appeared to publicly acknowledge her sexual orientation in an end of the year note addressing her health and reflecting on her recovery from a bone marrow transplant. 

"I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together," she wrote in a Facebook note. "I am grateful for the many prayers and well wishes for my recovery. I return every one of them to you 100 fold. On this last Sunday of 2013 I encourage you to reflect on what you are grateful for too."

The note was the first time the ABC News anchor has made public mention of her sexual orientation, according to CNN's Brian Stelter, author of a book chronicling GMA and Today anchors, Top of the Morning.

The anchor, who took a medical leave from ABC News to undergo a bone marrow transplant in August 2012, returned to GMA fulltime this September. Earlier this month, Roberts and the network agreed to a new ABC News deal, sources had told THR.
