'GMA's' Roberts has breast cancer surgery

NEW YORK -- "Good Morning America" co-anchor Robin Roberts underwent successful surgery for the breast cancer that was diagnosed recently, the network said.

Roberts found out that she had the early stages of breast cancer a few weeks ago after doing a tribute show to "GMA" film critic Joel Siegel, who died of cancer in June. Roberts said last week that she had cancer and that she would be receiving treatment shortly.

"Robin's surgery was very successful today. She has already left the hospital and is home resting," a "GMA" spokeswoman said Friday. Test results are pending, but Roberts said she was told by her doctor that the cancer was caught early.

Roberts will be resting at home at least some of this week and it isn't clear when she'll return to the air.
