Amy Robach          

20/20 Co-Anchor & ABC News Correspondent for 'Good Morning America'; Breast Cancer Survivor

Amy Robach is the co-anchor of ABC’s “20/20” and reports for “Good Morning America” and across ABC News. Previously, Robach was news anchor for ABC’s “Good Morning America” beginning in 2014.

Since joining ABC News, Robach has traveled nationally and internationally to cover major news events. She reported on the terrorist attacks in Manchester, UK and in Brussels, Belgium, as well as the mass shootings at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, TX, Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, Sandy Hook elementary school in Newton, Connecticut, and targeting police officers in Dallas, TX. Robach contributed to network-wide coverage on Election Night 2016 from Trump headquarters and the Washington Mall in Washington, DC for the 2017 Presidential Inauguration.

Robach has reported and anchored several “20/20” programs for ABC News. Most recently, she interviewed the California couple accused of a “Gone Girl” abduction hoax after enduring a real life, terrifying kidnapping. She also spoke exclusively with Leanna Taylor, the woman whose ex-husband was convicted of their toddler death in a hot car. She extensively covered the University of Virginia campus rape case landing the first interview with Dean Nicole Eramo following the retraction of the infamous Rolling Stone article.

In October 2013, Amy received some life-altering news when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. As part of "Good Morning America" "Goes Pink Day" in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and at the urging of her colleague, Robin Roberts, she had her first mammogram (broadcast live in front of millions of viewers). Since Robach was 40, the recommended age women should start getting mammograms, producers felt that she would be the perfect person to help raise awareness about the importance of early detection and participate in the first ever live television mammogram. A few weeks later, Robach received the devastating news that she had breast cancer. She underwent a double mastectomy and subsequent treatment. Robach says the decision to have that on-air mammogram was "the difference between life and death."

In 2015, Robach wrote a New York Times bestseller titled Better: How I Let Go of Control, Held On To Hope, and Found Joy in My Darkest Hour. In the book, she chronicles her journey of the twelve months following her breast cancer diagnosis. From her on-air mammogram on GMA to her treatment and its impact on her work life, her family and her marriage, Robach takes readers on an emotional journey of resilience, bravery and hope.
