News correspondent and anchor Amy Robach started her career in Washington D. C on Fox affiliate WTTG as a reporter and morning and noon anchor. During her time at the station, Robach covered the aftermath of 9/11 and the war with Iraq. She then moved to NBC's news and opinion outlet MSNBC, spending four years there as a weekend and daytime news anchor. In 2007, Robach began working as co-anchor on "Weekend Today" (NBC 1987-). During her years at NBC, Robach covered both the 2004 and 2008 elections and interviewed many political leaders, including President Barack Obama. In 2012 Robach left "Weekend Today" and started appearing as a news correspondent on rival show "Good Morning America" (ABC 1975-). On October 1, 2013, the first day of the annual breast cancer awareness program, Robach had a live on-air mammogram as part of the show's coverage of the disease. Although the mammogram was primarily intended as a way to raise awareness of the procedure for the audience, doctors found that Robach in fact had breast cancer, which was detected and treated much earlier than it otherwise would have been.
