ABC has announced the first round of guest hosts that will take over for ailing Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts while she undergoes a bone marrow transplant in response to her myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) diagnosis.
Deadline reports that a different cast member of Modern Family will appear each day for a week, with Stephen Colbert and Rob Lowe also making appearances.
“It shows them in a different light for a little bit and you get to see them do something different,” GMA’s senior executive producer Tom Cibrowski said of the decision to have guest hosts alongside the show’s regular anchors. “It might be a little funny if they have to read the prompter and there’s some slip-up. It’s all spontaneous.”
The Huffington Post also revealed that Oprah Winfrey, Barbara Walters, Katie Couric and Diane Sawyer are expected to guest host sometime next month.
