Thomas Roberts Moves On

Former Headlines News Anchor, Thomas Roberts, is joining the show "The Insider", according to several media outlets.

Veteran reporter Thomas Roberts will join CBS Television Distribution's "The Insider" team -- in New York. The L.A-based entertainment newsmag will be relocating to Gotham this fall, with Roberts' first day scheduled for Sept. 10.

Roberts is a former Headline News co-anchor who won a 2002 Emmy for an investigative segment on the poor conditions at a dog breeding operation. He will be a correspondent for "The Insider," while the formerly L.A.-based Pat O'Brien will host and Lara Spencer will co-anchor.
The newly Gothamized show will be taped at Broadway's Minskoff theater, home of "The Lion King." There's no word yet on whether "The Insider" will try to fit its set in the theater with the gigantic scenery from the musical, or how the daily program will record its Wednesday show between the 2 and 8 p.m. performances of the nearly three-hour tuner.

Roberts' general-interest news background contrasts to some extent with "The Insider's" focus on entertainment news, but exec producer Linda Bell Blue expressed confidence in Roberts, citing his "sincere disposition" and "extraordinary rapport with viewers."

"Thomas Roberts, who had been an anchor at CNN Headline News, has joined CBS' syndicated magazine show, The Insider, as a correspondent.

Before joining CNN in 2001, Roberts had been a local station anchor, including at KLKN-TV Lincoln, Neb.; WFTX-TV Fort Myers, Fla., and WAVY-TV Norfolk, Va.

Based in L.A., Roberts will join the program Sept. 10 when its new season debuts. He will have his own segment, "Rumor Report," as well as being a general assignment reporter."
Thomas has always been a favorite. We wish him good luck with his new job!

With his looks and great body, I wonder if he ever thought of getting into Hollywood.
