Ann Romney to guest host Good Morning America


LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Ann Romney, wife of Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney, will co-host top United States (US) breakfast TV show Good Morning America (GMA) for one day next week, ABC News said on Thursday.

Mrs Romney, who will be guest co-host for an hour on Oct 10, is one of a number of celebrities to join George Stephanopoulos at the anchor desk while Robin Roberts is on medical leave.

GMA producers said they were also in talks with First Lady Michelle Obama, but are still trying to find a suitable time.

Ann Romney and Michelle Obama have made frequent appearances on TV chat shows as the 2012 presidential election campaign nears its climax in November.
