Olympic gold medalist and entrepreneur Jennifer Azzi, 54, praised the GMA host, 62, on social media to express her excitement at their upcoming joint venture.
“I’m looking forward to moderating a conversation with Robin Roberts, New York Times Best Selling author, and co-anchor of Good Morning America, at the Silk Speaker Series on March 9,” Azzi tweeted.
Roberts showed her love back to the former professional basketball player by tweeting: “I’m looking forward to this too! Can’t wait to see you, Jennifer.”
Twitter was happy about the announcement of the inspiring event, and one fan wrote on the platform: “Love this.”
Another fan said, “this is awesome, Ms. Robin. Will there be a link for online viewing?”
In reply to the curious fan, Roberts affirmed that the speaker series would be available on the internet at a later date.
The Silk Speaker Series at the University of San Francisco regularly welcomes greats at their craft, previously inviting tennis legend Serena Williams and NBA star Stephen Curry.
HONORING ROBIN ROBERTS
Roberts was recently absent from GMA after she enjoyed a night out at the National Press Foundation awards.
She was the recipient of the Sol Taishoff Award which honors excellence in broadcast journalism.
Former GMA weather presenter and friend Tony Perkins, 63, shared a photo of himself and Robin, 62, at the National Press Foundation Awards.
Perkins is now the anchor of Get Up DC!
He captioned the Twitter post: “Reunited and it feels so good! So wonderful to see @RobinRoberts at the #NationalPressFoundation awards dinner tonight in DC.
“So proud of you, Robin! Congratulations and great to see you! @GMA.”
Roberts shared his tweet of the pair at Waldorf Astoria where the ceremony was held, while also responding to the WMMJ radio host.
The Peabody Award winner wrote: “Yes indeed!! Did my heart good to see you tonight. Much appreciated blast from the past!”
The selfie photo captured a smiling Roberts in a pinstripe suit, which she embellished with an understated necklace and earrings, and Tony in his grey suit and lavender tie combination.
Per the National Press Foundation website, the annual journalism awards dinner was held to “honor Robin Roberts of Good Morning America and other top journalists.”
