Robin Roberts is co-anchor of ABC’s Good Morning America. Under her leadership, the broadcast has won five Emmy Awards for Outstanding Morning Program and the 2017 People’s Choice Award for Favorite Daytime TV Hosting Team. She has conducted interviews with countless newsmakers, musicians, authors, athletes and celebrities. Additionally, Roberts has done extensive reporting around the globe.

Roberts has been honored with the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism, was inducted into the Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame, the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame and named one of Glamour’s Women of the Year. She has also been on the Hollywood Reporter’s New York Power List multiple times. She was voted the Most Trusted Person on Television by a Reader’s Digest poll in 2013.

Roberts launched her new production company, Rock'n Robin Productions in September 2014, which creates original broadcast and digital programming for ABC and other networks, including Roberts own podcast Everybody’s Got Something.

Roberts was diagnosed with breast cancer in June 2007. Five years later she was diagnosed with MDS or myelodysplastic syndrome, a disease of the blood and bone marrow once known as pre-leukemia. Roberts underwent a bone marrow transplant in September of that year. She was honored with a George Foster Peabody Award, Gracie Award and CINE Award for Robin’s Journey, reports on her MDS that inspired hundreds of potential bone marrow donors to register. Additionally, Roberts was recognized with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPY’s in July 2013.

In 2001, Roberts was named a “Louisiana Legend” by Louisiana Public Broadcasting. She was also named to the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup Advisory Board in January 1998.

Roberts was named co-anchor of Good Moring America in May 2005. She began contributing to the morning program in June 1995 and has worked in broadcasting for more than 20 years.

From 1990 to 2005, Roberts was a contributor to ESPN, where she hosted SportsCenter and contributed to NFL PrimeTime. Previously, Roberts was a sports reporter and anchor at WAGA-TV in Atlanta and a morning personality on WVEE-FM. Roberts began her broadcasting career while in college at WHMD/WFPR Radio in Hammond, LA.

In 1983 Roberts graduated cum laude from Southeastern Louisiana University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications. She was a standout performer on the women’s basketball team, ending her career as one of the school’s all-time leading scorers and rebounder.

Roberts’ first book, From the Heart: 7 Rules to Live By, was published in 2007. An updated version of the book, including an additional chapter on her battle with breast cancer, was released in 2008.

In her latest memoir Everybody’s Got Something, Roberts tells the amazing story of her courageous battle against a life-threatening illness, the life lessons she continues to learn, and her inspiring return to the GMA anchor desk. A native of the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Roberts currently resides in New York City.
