Who Will Sub for Robin Roberts on Good Morning America?

by at . Comments

With Robin Roberts scheduled to go on leave in August - in order to battle a rare blood disorder - ABC is busy lining up a slate of Good Morning America replacements.

Temporary replacements, that is.

Roberts will soon be off the air for a number of weeks as she undergoes a bone marrow transplant to deal with her diagnosis of myelodysplastic syndrome, and TMZ reports GMA producers have approached the following stars to sit in for a week at a time alongside George Stephanopoulos:

  • Diane Sawyer
  • Charlie Gibson
  • Barbara Walters
  • Chris Cuomo
  • Connie Chung
  • Joan Lunden

Look for names to be finalized the closer we get to Robin's departure date, and also look for Roberts to hopefully be gone for fewer than four months. With the illness detected early, the journalist's prognosis is reportedly "very good."

We couldn't be happier to hear it.

I have watched Good Morning America since Dave Hartman was ancor and i always admired Joan Lunen as a co-ancor. It would be great to see her again on Good Morning America.


They should have put Anne Curry in that spot. That would show the today show! I am still upset about how they did her.
