Robin Roberts

Won't Return to GMA

Til Mid 2013

Robin Roberts
will not re-join the "Good Morning America" staff until May at the earliest, and more probably June, 2013 ... TMZ has learned.

Multiple sources connected to the show and the anchor tell TMZ ... Robin's medical issues make an earlier return way too risky, because her immune system is extremely weak.

We're told doctors are pleased with her progress and say she's right on schedule, but that schedule puts her on the bench for 5 or 6 months ... something she's not crazy about but realizes is necessary.

Sources at GMA tell us ... the honchos are hoping that Robin can return as early as February, but we know that's not in the cards.

And speaking of cards ... we're told they're coming in by the truckload -- cards, emails, etc, wishing her well.  GMA honchos believe Robin's return will boost ratings for the show even higher, which can become problematic for the struggling "Today" show.

To her fans I am afraid to say that Robin is not coming back. I make this statement based on the picture above. It is the face of death. I have seen it many times before. Sorry folks.

she's not doing chemo since she had a stem cell replacemnt...her immune system has not recovered and docs telling her another six months doesn't look good...
hope that she does make a full and complete recovery...

but i am no fan of either robin or ann...they are both boring...

i remote back and forth between gma and today to get the best of both...and i am truly sick of gma with their daily or more like hourly updates and constant referring to her like she is sitting on the couch...and all for the ratings...

but the worse is listening to george...what a bore and the guy just knows what a misfit he is on the show...just always looks so uncomfortable, especially when he stands outside with all the tall people, which is anyone else but him...lol...

take care robin...

Take care of yourself, Robin. The show will be waiting for you when you come back, guarantee.

... Oh, and "Today" sucks.
