NEW YORK (AP) — ABC News says Robin Roberts will be back on the job at the “Good Morning America” anchor desk on Feb. 20. Her return will be five months to the day since her bone marrow transplant to treat a rare blood disorder.

Roberts has gotten the all-clear from her doctors, according to the announcement made Thursday on “GMA.” She reached the critical 100-day benchmark in December.

In January, she began a series of dry runs at the “GMA” studio to re-acclimate herself to the work routine.

Her last day on “GMA” was Aug. 30 before she started her medical leave.

About a year ago, Roberts began feeling the symptoms of her illness, known as MDS.

She said in a statement: “What a difference a year makes.”
