Since 2002, Roberts has covered a range of historic moments such as Hurricane Katrina, the 2008 Presidential election, the death of Osama bin Laden and more.
Over the years Roberts has had her own personal struggles, including her bout with breast cancer, but has remained resilient.
Former co-host Charlie Gibson shared these kind words.
“Ten years Robin, wow. The day I remember best is when you moved from the news desk over to the host desk, and Diane and I put a third chair there, ” he said. “I remember you were very nervous that first day — that didn’t last.”
“But we were through so much – the death of your dear, sweet father, the destruction of hometown, Pass Christian, and then of course, you cancer. That’s why so many people, I think, love you. Because your emotions are always so genuine, and that’s why this long departed former host and anchor loves you too.”
