Robin Roberts has been steadily easing back into her anchor role for "Good Morning America" ever since she took time off last summer for a bone marrow transplant. But after Labor Day, Roberts will finally be back full time.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Roberts, who has been doing four-day weeks for the last few months, picked a four-day workweek (after Labor Day) to return full time.

"But I love that I start on a four-day week.... Snuck another one in there."

Roberts can afford to take things easy going back full time. The ABC morning program she's appeared on since 1995 has been No. 1 in total viewers for over a year now, finally surpassing long-time champ "Today" on NBC.

Roberts, who had been diagnosed with MDS, a blood and bone marrow disorder, took six weeks off after her transplant last September. She recently vacationed in Hawaii, a place she'd been dreaming of visiting while still in the hospital.
