This morning, Robin Roberts marked 20 years on Good Morning America. Roberts officially joined GMA as newsreader on April 23, 2002, but had been a feature reporter for the show going back to 1995 when she was still an ESPN SportsCenter anchor. On May 9, 2005, then-ABC News president David Westin promoted Roberts to co-anchor of the morning broadcast alongside co-anchors Diane Sawyer and Charles Gibson.
The rest is history.
The morning’s broadcast was filled with surprises and notable moments including, a performance by Patti LaBelle, special taped messages from former First Lady Michelle Obama, tennis legend Billie Jean King and Grammy-winning artist India.Arie, a plaque highlights Roberts’ GMA legacy in Times Square and a look back at her most memorable interviews from the past 20 years.
