Robin Roberts is back in business: in addition to returning to "Good Morning America" in a few days, she will also be co-hosting the Oscars pre-show on February 24.
The morning show tweeted on Thursday, "Big news! @RobinRoberts and @LaraSpencer will be hosting the Oscars pre-show with @JessCagleEW and @KChenoweth!"
The awards show will air on ABC on Sunday, February 24th. Roberts will make her much-anticipated return to "Good Morning America" on Wednesday, February 20. She has been away on medical leave — battling MDS, a rare blood and bone marrow disorder — for the past five months. She received a bone marrow transplant from her sister Sally in September and her body has responded positively.
On Wednesday, People magazine published excerpts from an interview with Roberts, in which she said that there was a point after the procedure where "I felt like I was dying." She has made significant progress since then, telling the magazine, "It's an amazing feeling, each day feeling stronger."
