Syracuse (WSYR-TV/ABC) – Good Morning America host and former ESPN anchor Robin Roberts was presented with a special award at the cable sports network's ESPY Awards on Wednesday night.
A former collegiate athlete and a cancer survivor, Roberts was presented with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.
“I realize there are many worthy of holding this honor - others who have exhibited far more courage, strength, and resilience, and it is humbling to me to represent you tonight. I draw strength from you,” Roberts said during her acceptance speech.
“You give me the courage to face down any challenge - to know that when fear knocks, to let faith answer the door,” she continued.
Roberts was a sportscaster at ESPN for 15 years before joining ABC.
