Robin and ABC News anchor Juju Chang covered the horrific mass shooting that killed 10 and injured 10 others.
At the California ballroom dance studio, suspect Huu Can Tran incited terror when he walked into a crowd of people celebrating the Lunar New Year on Saturday night before opening fire.
JuJu said: “On Lunar New Year, it’s when you start the new year and bring with you all of these traditions to bring good fortune and good luck, and the Year of the Rabbit here has started off with such tragedy.”
Robin then patted her co-star on the shoulder as her voice cracked with such heavy emotion.
The ABC star asked: “How are you doing?”
JuJu said, “You’re so kind to ask, Robin.”
“We’re having trouble reaching out to these victims. And yet, these were people who were finding joy amidst all their hardships and struggles.”
The suspected shooter was found deceased inside a white van in Torrence as he fatally shot himself when the police approached.
On Instagram, Robin shared a heartbreaking photo of the flowers left at the site
She wrote: “We’re thinking about everyone affected by the tragic shooting in #MontereyPark“
“Sadly, a #LunarNewYear celebration quickly turned into tragedy.”
‘A SPECIAL EVENING’
Robin was previously missing from the GMA main desk under different circumstances.
The 62-year-old host recently appeared at a prestigious event to honor Martin Luther King Jr.
Robin re-shared a photo from a fan on social media.
The follower had posted an image of her at the event.
She captioned the post: “My pleasure to be a part of such a special evening.”
Joined Whit Johnson and Michael Strahan at the desk, weekend anchor Eva Pilgrim filled in for the missing TV personality.
ROBIN’S PLAYFUL SIDE
When Robin was at work, she showed off her witty sense of humor.
A day before her absence, Robin displayed her playful side as she threw shade at her co-host, Sam Champion, and his “shaky” weather report.
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 continued: “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 her.
Robin groaned aloud and said: “A little shaky.”
