Benard himself cleared up the confusion by tweeting: “I made a mistake on the date. My GOOD MORNING AMERICA is tomorrow between 7:00-7:15 a.m. Pacific Time. I said it was Friday, I don’t know… Doesn’t matter. It’s tomorrow. I’m gonna be talking about mental health, Bipolar Day, GH, State of Mind… just talking about stuff. Life. Sorry for the mix-up, but tomorrow morning, GOOD MORNING AMERICA.”

In a very apropos move, Benard then began singing the classic show tune from the musical Annie, Tomorrow! He then told GH fans to: “Be there or be square!”
April is the 59th anniversary of GH’s debut and it makes sense that Benard will share some fun stories about his years on the long-running show. He debuted in 1993 and has won three Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Benard is also a mental health awareness advocate. His podcast State of Mind explores various topics and he has shared insights about his own diagnosis and treatments for bipolar disorder.
The podcast begins in July 2020 on YouTube and often features GH stars. Tyler Christopher (ex-Nikolas Cassadine) was a recent guest. The former GH star talked frankly about his struggles with addiction and a close brush with death.

Will Benard give fans a tease of what is to come for his character Sonny on the ABC sudser? As usual Sonny’s life is complicated and he has many irons in the fire. He’s still coming to terms with losing months of his life due to amnesia and now it appears he’s taking the law into his own hands by grabbing Esme Prince (Avery Pohl) off the street. She is a stone-cold vixen, will she be coerced to admit to leaking Joss Jacks’ (Eden McCoy) and Cam Webber’s (William Lipton) sex tape if Sonny has an offer she can’t refuse?
