20/20 Interview with Deborah Roberts

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 World News tonight 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.

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 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.
