Amy Robach has been officially announced as Good Morning America‘s news anchor, replacing Josh Elliot who has decamped to work for NBC Sports.
Her colleagues congratulated her on-air Monday morning on the big promotion. But what’s even more impressive is she’s handling the new duties while still undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer treatment.
Even last week a viewer asked her on Twitter “How do you do it? You had treatment yesterday, you looked unfazed this AM” to which she replied “give it my all for 2 hours, then straight bed!”
40-year-old Robach also revealed she’s undergoing her sixth round of chemo with the final goal of eight.
Josh congratulated Amy on her new promotion via Twitter telling her “Congratulations to @arobach–a most deserving colleague and a dear, dear friend. @GMA will be the better for your presence, Amy. #proudpal“
Congratulations to this strong and brave lady!
