Power List 2014: ROBIN ROBERTS
TV Host, 53
For almost a decade, Americans have awakened to get their news from Roberts, anchor of ABC’s Good Morning America—the highest-rated morning news show program on television. Roberts, a 30-year TV news veteran, came out last year in a Facebook post that celebrated the cancer survivor’s 100 days after a bone marrow transplant during her fight against myelodysplastic syndrome. Among others, Roberts thanked her girlfriend of 10 years, Amber Laign. The Peabody Award winner has since become the face of the Be the Match Registry, a nonprofit run by the National Marrow Donor Program.
