Chris Rock, Oprah Winfrey, Barbara Walters and More Will Guest Host ABC's "GMA" in Robin Roberts' Absence
31 Aug 2012
Chris Rock, who appeared on Broadway in The Motherf**ker With the Hat, Oprah Winfrey and cast members from ABC's "Modern Family" will be guest hosts on ABC's "Good Morning America," according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The slew of celebrities will visit the ABC morning news program to fill in for co-host Robin Roberts, who departed the show following the Aug. 30 broadcast.
Robins, who was scheduled to begin her medical leave Aug. 31 to treat her recently diagnosed myelodisplastic syndrome — a rare form of leukemia — left a day early to be with her family due to her mother's recent death.
"See you soon. I will get back as fast as I can," said Roberts, who will undergo a bone-marrow transplant while on medical leave.
Other guest anchors include Kelly Ripa, Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric, Barbara Walters and Elizabeth Vargas. They will join "GMA" anchors Josh Elliott, Sam Champion, George Stephanopoulos and Lara Spencer.
