Robin Roberts Returns To 'GMA' Studios For First Time Since Bone Marrow Transplant

Robin Roberts returned to the "Good Morning America" studios on Thursday for the first time since her bone marrow transplant in September.

Roberts is undergoing a delicate process of re-entry into her normal routine, to see how her fragile immune system reacts. She recently announced that she will be returning to her regular co-hosting role in February. Before that, though, she has to reacquaint herself with the early hours and the "GMA" set.

ABC said that Roberts woke up at 3 AM, and was in the Times Square studios at 5. ABC News executive James Goldston tweeted a photo of her sitting behind the "GMA" desk.

In a statement, Roberts said it was a "thrill" to return.
