Robin retweeted a photo a fan had posted of her at the event and captioned it: “My pleasure to be a part of such a special evening.”
She was replaced on GMA by weekend anchor Eva Pilgrim, who joined Whit Johnson and Michael Strahan on the desk.
A day earlier, Robin showed off her playful side as she shaded her co-host, Sam Champion’s, “shaky” weather report.
The meteorologist returned to the show earlier this week from his Brazilian vacation.
He failed to impress Robin while using sports analogies to discuss the weather.
Sam said: “Look at this. 240 inches of snow in Mountain Mammoth, California.
“Now, how do I relate that to people who don’t live there?
“So, you know me. I fall back on sports analogies, as I always do.”
Robin was heard groaning off-camera.
Sam went on: “If you took a basketball hoop, and you put two of them on top of each other.
“Am I good, Robin? How am I doing right now?” he asked.
Robin groaned and said: “A little shaky.”
Dancing With The Stars alum Sam was previously absent from GMA and Eyewitness News This Morning.
While on vacation, the 61-year-old traveled to Ipanema, Rio De Janeiro, with his husband, Rubem Robierb, 46.
Sam shared a snapshot of his toned physique on social media.
The weather anchor dropped a saucy image of himself and his partner in their speedos.
The couple was possibly in South America to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary.
