Robin Quivers made her triumphant return to The Howard Stern Radio Show studio this morning, following 17 months during which she did the program from home as the result of a cancer diagnosis.
Quivers said she felt little pressure participating in person again inside the SiriusXM booth, but Stern was clearly emotional.
"Seriously, I've been praying for this day... and I'm really happy that you are here," the host said, telling his long-time colleague to never again fall ill.
"I was very very depressed over your illness," Stern added. "I wasn't sure what the outcome was going to be. There was a time I really did think I was going to lose you permanently. And I'll tell you what, this is a pretty remarkable day that you are here triumphant and cured. I never would have predicted this. Honestly."
Amen, Howard. And welcome back, Robin.
These two have worked together since 1981.
