Oprah To Stand In For Robin Roberts On GMA

Submitted by on September 3, 2012 – 12:00 pm Comments

There is no denying the fact that, Good Morning America is a really popular show, but there is also no denying the fact that its popular co-host Robin Roberts is going through a really bad patch. She has in recent times not only had to bear the loss of a loved one, but had to also battle a health scare. Basically her mother recently passed away and in addition, Robin is now, having to go through a risky bone marrow transplant for a rare blood disorder. In other words, her medical condition and its treatment thereof, means that she shall require time to recuperate, for which she has taken a leave of absence from GMA, which shall be of about 3-4 months.

Reportedly, ABC News has already named her replacement. It was obvious that her replacement had to be a media heavyweight, who has years of experience in front of the camera. This was important, as ABC didn’t want the ratings or the viewership of the show to be affected in any way, during Robin’s absence. Despite all these factors, it was hugely surprising to know that Oprah Winfrey would stand in for Robin. It can’t be considered anything less than a casting coup by ABC News that, it has managed to bag the queen bee if you will, of television.

 Roping in Oprah would surely do wonders for the already popular show. In fact, it wouldn’t be surprising if a huge spike in the ratings is seen, the day she begins hosting it. At the moment though, it isn’t clear how frequently Oprah would be hosting the show and for how long she has specifically been brought in. Also, interesting is the fact that, this is the first time Oprah shall be seen in her capacity as a host, since wrapping up her talk show.

Now, there is no stopping GMA from becoming the No.1 network morning show across the board, from the looks of it. Oprah would have to do a really awful job as a host for the show to not receive an overwhelming response. On her part, she can simply cruise the show on its way to No.1, without having to try too hard.
