My Conversation With Robin Roberts: 'Everybody's Got Something'

Posted: Updated:

Veteran broadcaster and Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts joins me tonight. A broadcaster for more than 20 years, Roberts has earned multiple Emmys and done extensive reporting around the globe. After overcoming breast cancer and, five years later, a rare blood disorder, she writes in her memoir, Everybody's Got Something, that she discovered she was much stronger than she thought.

In the following clip, Roberts reflects upon the inspirational journey she experienced with her sister, Sally-Ann, who donated the bone marrow that helped save her life.
