Deborah Roberts joined the ABC newsmagazine "20/20" in June 1995. Since then she has also served as a substitute anchor on "Good Morning America" and "World News Weekend." Roberts reports regularly on a wide variety of stories for the newsmagazine program and for "World News with Diane Sawyer." She has reported from Africa on the HIV/AIDS crisis and orphans, and the CA wildfires, which earned her an Emmy award. She also was awarded an Emmy for her emotional, in-depth reporting on an Ethiopian American woman's journey back to Africa to find her mother and for her work with ABC's millennium coverage. Roberts also won a Clarion award for her coverage of abuse within the Amish community. Roberts began her network career with NBC News in 1990 as a general assignment correspondent. She covered stories in the Atlanta and Miami bureaus of NBC News and later became a correspondent for "Dateline NBC" from the program's inception. She also reported from Saudi Arabia and Kuwait during the aftermath of the Persian Gulf War, and from the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain where she earned an Emmy nomination for her coverage. Previously, Roberts was the bureau chief of WFTV-TV, the ABC affiliate in Orlando, Florida, from February 1987 to May 1990. She also served as the station's field anchor for NASA and as a co-anchor of the weekend news. Roberts began her career in 1982 at WTVM-TV in Columbus, Georgia, and subsequently worked at WBIR-TV in Knoxville, Tennessee, where she was highly regarded for her coverage of the state legislature. A 1982 graduate of the University of Georgia, Roberts was awarded the 1992 University of Georgia Distinguished Alumnus Award, presented annually to recent graduates who have excelled rapidly in their professions. She also earned a Sports Emmy nomination for her coverage of the 1992 Olympics; was cited as top local female anchor by the Orlando Sentinel; and was recently awarded the Clarion Award for her investigative story on the Amish. Roberts resides in Manhattan with her husband, NBC weatherman Al Roker, and their two children. « Read Less
