Celebrity Speaker Amy Robach is the newest addition to the ABC morning show, Good Morning America’s (GMA) anchor team. The journalist and Celebrity Speaker is also a breast cancer awareness advocate since her diagnosis in 2013. It was on the national morning show that Robach had an on air mammogram to help bring attention to the importance of early detection during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The results concluded that she did have breast cancer, leading Amy to believe her decision to take the assignment of an on air mammogram saved her life, or was “the difference between life and death” as she puts it. October 30, 2014 was her one year anniversary on when she discovered she had breast cancer and Amy decided to look at it in a positive life by viewing that day as the day she started surviving.
In 2014, Celebrity Speaker Amy Robach joined fellow GMA anchors Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, Lara Spencer, and weather anchor Ginger Zee on the morning show after the departure of former anchor Josh Elliott who left the show for a position with NBC Sports. Prior to her new position, Robach appeared on several other news shows including NBC Nightly News, Countdown with Keith Olbermann, MSNBC Live, Weekend Today, NBC’s Today Show, ABC’s 20/20, Entertainment Tonight, Early Today, Morning Joe, The View, Inside Edition, and Good Morning America Weekend Edition. She also appeared in an episode of the PBS children’s television series, Sesame Street. Throughout her career, Amy Robach has covered many important stories including the death of former US President, Ronald Reagan, and the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina. She has also interviewed several big name celebrities including Enrique Iglesias, Charlie Sheen, Jennifer Lopez, David Beckham, and even joined musical guest Pharrell dancing to his hit song, Happy, live on Good Morning America.
