Good Morning America‘s Robin Roberts won’t be returning to the ABC morning show until May or June. She’s been out on medical leave since early September undergoing treatment for a rare blood and bone marrow disorder, MDS.
According to TMZ, “Robin’s medical issues make an earlier return way too risky, because her immune system is extremely weak. We’re told doctors are pleased with her progress and say she’s right on schedule, but that schedule puts her on the bench for 5 or 6 months…something she’s not crazy about but realizes is necessary.”
The show’s execs were hoping for a February return, but that won’t be happening.
