Tyler Gill is a native of Fairfax, SC and a rising sophomore majoring in Mass Communications at Benedict College in Columbia, SC . Tyler was inspired by his TV role model, Robin Roberts, who is the morning news anchor on ABC's Good Morning America. "I have been emulating Ms. Roberts since I was in the 5th grade; she has been a major influence in my life, " Tyler says enthusiastically.

"Towards the end of the Spring Semester, I organized a trip to appear on the 'exterior' of Good Morning America," explains Tyler. "I persistently sent out tweets to Robin Roberts warning her that I am an aspiring Talk Show Host and news anchor from South Carolina. On June 26, 2015, 20 minutes before the live show began, I sent out another tweet informing Ms. Robin Roberts that I have made it to Good Morning America and I would love to meet her and chat."

A few moments later, one of her producers and security guards came outside and pulled Tyler out of the audience. They brought him to the studio where the live show was produced. In the studio he had the honor of meeting and chat- ting with ABC-Good Morning America Anchors, Robin Roberts, Lara Spencer, George Stephanopolous, Ginger Zee, Paula Faris and David Muir. He shared his aspirations with Ms. Roberts and her colleagues. The GMA team encour- aged Tyler to work hard at Benedict. He took several pictures with TV person- alities and they told him that he was welcomed back anytime to the GMA.
