About Robin Roberts

Robin Roberts Biography

Robin Roberts is the versatile co-anchor of America’s top-rated morning news program, Good Morning America, with more than 30 years of experience as a producer, reporter and anchor in radio and television.
Raised on her beloved Mississippi Gulf Coast, Robin was destined for success. Surrounded by her remarkable family -- love, inspiration, and creativity was never in short supply. As a child, Robin understood the power of both aspiration and inspiration. Her father, Lawrence Roberts, was a Colonel in the United States Air Force, and a member of the famed Tuskegee Airmen. Her mother, Lucimarian Roberts, was a social worker, educator, and Chairperson of the Mississippi Board of Education. Bolstered by their encouragement and her talent, Robin excelled academically, and also in athletics as a basketball star at her alma mater, Southeastern Louisiana University. After college, her ambition and love of the game inspired her to take a shot off the court with a local news broadcast. Her knowledge of sports was a given, but it was her preternatural passion for broadcast journalism that provided the building blocks for her future.

After navigating the waters of local news in several U.S. cities, including Nashville and Atlanta, Robin joined ESPN as a host of SportsCenter at 29, one of many career slam-dunks. Robin’s preparation, knowledge, and fearlessness prevailed as she encouraged people everywhere to ‘get in the game.’

After several years as a contributing correspondent and news reader, in 2005, Robin joined Diane Sawyer and Charlie Gibson as a co-anchor of Good Morning America. She would go on to cover countless news events and entertainment specials, from Hurricane Katrina and the Inauguration of President Barack Obama, to the Academy Awards, where she has served several times as the host of the red carpet pre-show.

Robin’s path to realizing her dreams was not without its hardships. Twice she faced life-threatening illnesses. She credits the love and support from her family, friends, colleagues and viewers for helping her overcome breast cancer, and a rare and often fatal blood disease called myelodysplastic syndrome, referred to as MDS. Through it all, she honored her friends and supporters by choosing to make “her mess her message,” something her mother said often. She opened her heart and soul, lifted the veil, and shared her struggle with the world on Good Morning America, and on a primetime 20/20 special entitled Robin’s Journey, hoping to inspire and encourage those in need. In 2012, her tireless documentation of her own medical odyssey won a Peabody Award. In 2013, she was the recipient of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs. In 2014, Robin opened up even more in the pages of her second book, Everybody’s Got Something, making the New York Times best sellers list.

As President of Rock'n Robin Productions she actively oversees creative content and new business partnerships. She’s thrilled to be working alongside her friend and longtime ABC News colleague John R. Green, who manages the company’s diverse and talented group of staffers. Together—Robin and the team at Rock’n Robin Productions are forging a new path into the world of content development. Robin is keenly aware of the current nature of programming and is extremely excited to expand upon the boundaries of traditional content and uncover the limitless possibilities of media. As she often says, “not even the sky is the limit.”
