Troy Roberts exhibits his talent as a renowned TV news anchor every day on CBS News. He has been contributing to the field of media journalism since the early 1980s. Currently residing in New York, he anchors CBS News’s signature show 48 hours Mystery.

His soaring popularity brings great curiosity about his life from his fans and audiences. And most often than not, people are seeking to know, especially about his personal life.

But the veteran award-winning journalist has strickly avoided speaking about his personal life in public, which has generated various speculations.

With no details of his love life — including whether he ever got married or relished relationships with girlfriends — by the age of 58, rumors started to circulate that Roberts may be gay.

Since Roberts hardly speaks anything about his personal life, it becomes more difficult to conclude anything about his sexual orientation. Hence, we can’t confirm anything until and unless he himself confirms his gay or is secretly married.

Adding to the rumors, some sources report that he was involved in a failed relationship with famous American radio personality and actress Robin Quivers in the 1990s. But they never confirmed the relationship.

It is not just his love life that Roberts has successfully kept under the wraps but also details of his family and early life.
