Robin Roberts does "test run" for 'Good Morning America' return


Months after taking a leave of absence from Good Morning America for a bone marrow transplant, Robin Roberts returned this morning, doing a "test run" of her eventual return to her anchor duties.

Roberts returned to the Manhattan studios of GMA at 5 a.m., according to an ABC News release from Roberts.

"What a thrill to be back at 'GMA''s Times Square Studio this morning and see the best folks in the world, my ‘GMA’ family. I can’t wait to get back to the anchor chair in a few weeks," the release read.

Roberts leave began in August, as she sought treatment for myeldisplastic syndrome - a form of leukemia that is rare. Her bone marrow transplant took place the following month.

She announced her return to Good Morning America on January 14, saying that "I should be back sometime in February. Now I have a date in mind that's very personal and very important to me, but I will ultimately listen to, of course, what my doctors say, and we have to remember we're in the height of flu season. There's a lot of factors still."

A series of celebrity guest anchors have pinch hit for Roberts since her leave began.
