ABC News anchor Amy Robach will host the NLGJA’s annual spring benefit in New York — this year on the first day of spring, March 20. ABC News is also the presenting sponsor of this year’s event which will be held at the Prince George Ballroom. The benefit brings together more than 300 journalists, executives, educators and students who support the mission of fair and accurate coverage of LGBT issues.
“Headlines & Headliners continues to be one of the premiere media events in New York, and we are incredibly pleased to welcome Amy as our host,” said NLGJA President Jen Christensen. “Amy has inspired us not only as a journalist, but also through sharing her brave battle with breast cancer and the importance of early detection.”
Robach was diagnosed with breast cancer last fall after undergoing a mammogram as part of a “Good Morning America” story. She continues chemotherapy even as she plans to cover the Sochi Olympics for “GMA.”
