Robin Roberts starts her days at 3:15 a.m.
The “Good Morning America” anchor, 57, broke down her day for The Cut, saying each morning begins with about 10 minutes of news to catch up on headlines she missed overnight.
“I then turn off the TV and I meditate for 20 minutes in my bedroom,” she said. “At that point, it’s like 4:05, and I do some deep breathing. Then I turn the TV set back on to catch more of the news, hop in the shower, head out the door, and have my driver Dario put on some gospel music in the car. Then, I’m in the studio by 5.”
Roberts, who’s been with the network since 2002, doesn’t eat breakfast. She also steers clear of coffee, but is a big fan of kombucha.
“I can’t eat in the morning. I take some gummies. Vitamin gummies, not the other kind of gummies — thank you very much,” she quipped.
Despite her demanding around-the-clock schedule, Roberts makes time to spend with her partner Amber Laign. Roberts came out as gay in December 2013 and soon opened up about her love life with Laign.
“Amber and I have been traveling a lot on weekends because I’ve had a lot of appearances, and we make time for each other during those periods,” she told the site. “It’s just about making those moments.”
Above all, it seems the cancer survivor’s optimism is what pushes her forward each day.
“I remember from when I was an athlete, I was always at my best if I’d put in the work,” she added. “It’s no different with the work that I do here. I just make sure that I’m absolutely as prepared as I can be; you have to change the way you think to change the way you feel.”
In 2013, Roberts inked a massive long-term deal with ABC. At the time, sources said the star journalist would bank between $13 million and $14 million each year. It’s unclear when her contract ends.
