GMA’s Robin Roberts fans brace for disappointment after she announced she will be leaving the studio next week
FANS of GMA star Robin Roberts are bracing for possible disappointment after the presenter announced she is leaving the studio next week.
The veteran journalist, 62, will report from New Zealand rather than New York.
Known for her daily glam fam clips, Roberts offers motivational tips to her loyal fanbase.
However, she admitted that while she is abroad, she may find it difficult to post her daily prayer.
Roberts told fans Thursday: “After several months of planning, the Glam Fam and I are traveling to New Zealand.
“We’re leaving today, we’ll get in touch from there next week.”
She added, “It’s going to be a bit of a challenge for us to put out a daily message and prayer, but you know we’re with you in spirit always.”
Roberts didn’t post anything to her Instagram account after Thursday’s Glam Fam segment, and she didn’t present on Friday’s show.
Regular GMA presenters Michael Strahan and George Stephanopoulos were on the podium.
Dozens of fans took the opportunity to wish Roberts well on his travels, while some admitted they will miss morning prayers.

One supporter said: “You are missed but I can’t wait to see your coverage next week.”
While another commented: “Enjoy New Zealand. Thanks a lot for this [your] daily messages of blessing.”
And a third fan called Robert’s journey “so exciting,” before adding: “So exciting! Safe travels and enjoy every moment of Glam Fam.”
Viewers also took the opportunity to suggest potential honeymoon destinations for the presenter.
Earlier this month she announced that she will say “yes” to the marriage.
The TV star has been in a long-term relationship with her partner Amber Laign.
Laign and Roberts have been a couple for almost 18 years.
One fan tweeted, “By the way, I heard New Zealand is a great honeymoon destination…just to say the least.”
She replied, “Sweet Amber is traveling with me, maybe we’ll explore it as a possible honeymoon spot.”
Last week the show teased Robert’s upcoming trip Down Under and revealed it will showcase the country’s natural beauty.
In a hilarious moment, Strahan asked the presenter if she would bungee jump into the country.
Roberts replied: “I’m taking the plunge into marriage so why not?!
“I just have to say that the team has been working hard on this for a few months and we are very excited.”
She told fans she had never been to New Zealand before and teased that it was going to be an “adventure”.
