They may have been rivals for approximately one year, and Good Morning America overtaking The Today Show in the ratings may have led to Ann Curry’s departure from the latter program, but that doesn’t mean Robin Roberts was happy to see her fellow journalist go.
Appearing on Piers Morgan Tonight yesterday, Robert said she doesn’t “take joy” in watching The Today Show fall apart, not when there are actual human beings in the other end.
“Let me tell you, the morning that Ann [Curry] said her goodbye, we were watching,” Robins said. “And on our program, which you don’t see very often, we spent the last couple of minutes talking about Ann Curry…and appreciating her, and such great respect.”
Roberts, of course, has gone through her own emotional journey this year, having just returned to the GMA co-anchor chair after a few weeks ago.
Five months after beating breast cancer, Robins revealed this summer that she is battling a rare blood and bone marrow disorder. A bone marrow transplant is scheduled for early September.
