Robin Roberts Lands on Barbara Walters’ Final ‘Most Fascinating’ List

robin-robertsThis year, ABC News will have one of its own on Barbara Walters‘ annual “Most Fascinating Person of the Year” list: “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts.

It has been quite a year for Roberts, who returned to “GMA” in February after undergoing a bone marrow transplant from her sister, New Orleans anchor Sally-Ann Roberts, in 2012. In September, as Roberts celebrated her “first birthday” after the transplant, “Good Morning America” won its first season in 19 years.

It will be the final “Most Fascinating” special for Walters before she retires next year. Walters will reveal her most fascinating person of the year and take a look back at past years for the special, which airs on December 18.

Others who made the 2013 list: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, NSA whisteblower Edward Snowden, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Lawrence and Prince George, the first child of Duchess Kate and Prince William.
