NEW YORK - "Good Morning America" anchor Robin Roberts will take time off after Tuesday’s show, announcing that she’s not feeling well.
Roberts announced last month that she has a blood and bone marrow disease known as MDS. And she has been experiencing fatigue from her condition.
She will take the rest of this week off, as well as the next two weeks.
But she says she'll be getting a little help from her friends during her absence from the ABC morning show.
Roberts said Thursday that ABC News' Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer and Katie Couric are among those who would be subbing for her. Others mentioned: talk-show host Kelly Ripa and panelists from the ABC talk show "The View."
She says she's been energized by "Good Morning America" snapping the ratings dominance of NBC's "Today."
"That's pretty good medicine," she said.
