*“Good Morning America” co-host Robin Roberts will sit down with two of the girls who were kidnapped by Ariel Castro and survived a decade of imprisonment and torture in his Cleveland home.
The interview will air as an hourlong special on April 24 at 10 p.m. ET with additional portions to run April 27 on “GMA,” “World News Tonight with David Muir,” “Nightline,” and a variety of ABC News websites.
Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry, and Georgina “Gina” DeJesus were held against their will in Castro’s house on Seymour Avenue until May 6, 2013, when Berry escaped with her six-year-old daughter and contacted the police. Knight and DeJesus were rescued by responding officers and Castro was arrested within hours.
Berry and DeJesus will sit down with Roberts to discuss the ordeal, which is chronicled in their upcoming book, Hope: A Memoir of Survival in Cleveland, also scheduled to be released on April 27. The book contains descriptions of events within Castro’s house, diary entries and reporting on Castro’s life and law enforcement’s efforts to find the missing girls.
