Robin Roberts returns to GMA on February 20

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

"Hallelujah," Robin Roberts posted on her Facebook page this morning.  The South Mississippi native, and Good Morning America co-host will return to her anchor chair on February 20.  That's five months after her bone marrow transplant.

"I'm excited to re-join my wonderful GMA family," wrote Roberts. 

Over the weekend, Roberts returned to the gulf coast.  She spent a couple of days with family in both New Orleans and Pass Christian.  While in Mississippi, she visited the Pass Christian Boys and Girls Club. 

When Roberts returns to the air two weeks from now, she says she looks forward to thanking you.  "Your compassion has been an enormous source of comfort to me and my family," Roberts writes on her Facebook post.

Before returning to work, Roberts says she's heading to the beach, "to reflect and give thanks for my many blessings."
