Millions of fans are inspired by Roberts’ struggle 10 years ago with the blood disease myelodysplastic syndrome (receiving a lifesaving bone-marrow transplant from her sister), as  
they watch her forge a connection with celebs and newsmakers alike on “Good Morning America.” In April, ABC feted the co-anchor’s 20 years with the show, and in September she was dispatched to Ghana for a powerful series on its culture and influence on Marvel sequel “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” She’s seen format changes at the morning staple, including one with a live audience. Her independent efforts, under her Rock’n Robin Productions shingle, have brought poignant stories about Mahalia Jackson and now-grown abducted baby Kamiyah Mobley to the Lifetime cable network. And in November, Roberts’ emotional deep dive with Michelle Obama for the First Lady’s book “The Light We Carry” was turned into an ABC prime­time special.
