On Tuesday, fill-in host Will Reeve led a segment on April Wise, a bus driver who pulled a student back after an oncoming car was speeding past the bus.
The Dayton, Ohio, driver started to yell and pull back the child by his bookbag.
At the end of the segment, Will turned towards his co-hosts and talked to Robin about her past.
“Robin, you were at one time,” he said.
She nodded her head and said: “Yeah. I was a school bus driver.”
“And you really feel the sense of responsibility. And kudos to April. And you heard the gratitude of the mom.”
“It was instincts,” Wille said.
“Yeah,” Robin responded.
ROBIN THE BUS DRIVER
Although she has tweeted about it in the past, Robin first revealed on TV in 2022 that she was a bus driver.
She had an interview with Ellen DeGeneres and the former talk show host brought it up.
“I’ve learned today for the first time, after all of these years of knowing you, that you were a bus driver at some point in your life,” Ellen said.
“School bus driver,” Robin corrected her.
“A school bus? Like a short bus or a long bus?” the comedian asked.
“No. No. The big mama. The big mama,” the journalist said.
“And I was in high school at the time.”
“That seems safe,” Ellen joked.
The GMA host explained that she was turning 18 at the time and that she was on the tennis team.
She said their coach told them that if they didn’t have a bus driver, they might have to forfeit the season.
“So, I went through all of the courses and took all of the classes and everything,” she told Ellen.
She added that she used to be a substitute driver as well, and it would get awkward when she would see her classmates get on the bus.
Many people know Robin from GMA, but aside from that she has had a few other careers.
As mentioned earlier, she was a bus driver.
In 2014, the host started her own production company called Rock’n Robin Productions.
She has also written four books.
And in 1983, Robin began her broadcasting career as a sports anchor and reporter for WDAM-TV in Mississippi.
Then, she went on to WLOX-TV and eventually WSMV-TV in Nashville.
For two years Robin was a sports anchor for WAGA-TV in Atlanta and was also a radio host at that time.
1990 saw Robin joining ESPN until 2005.
In 1995, she began working at ESPN and GMA simultaneously and worked as a news anchor.
Robin eventually became co-anchor, where she is at today.
The host has also guest-starred in many TV shows and movies.
