Robin Roberts Honored At The ESPYs

ESPN televised the ESPY Awards last night, recognizing the best in the world of sports. The Worldwide Leader in Sports also took the time however to honor one of its own: ABC News “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts, a former anchor for “SportsCenter” who shattered glass ceilings and color barriers in the TV world.

Roberts was honored with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award, which was presenetd by LeBron James. Roberts’ sister Sally-Ann was there, as was Josh Elliott, another ESPN anchor turned “GMA” host.

“I draw strength from you, you give me the courage to face down any challenge, you let me know that when fear knocks you let faith answer the door,” Roberts said to the crowd. “All of you here tonight, and you there at home, and especially my wonderful, caring ESPN and ABC GMA family, yes I have my sister’s DNA, but you will always have my heart.”
