Troy Roberts exhibits his talent as a renowned TV news anchor every day on CBS News. He has been contributing to media journalism since the early 1980s. Currently living 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 more often than not, people are interested to know more about his personal life. 

But the veteran award-winning journalist has strictly 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 had 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 authenticate anything unless he confirms he is gay or is secretly married.

Adding to the rumors, some sources report 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.

Roberts was born on September 9, 1962, and is a native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The American national graduated from the University of California at Berkeley in 1984 and holds a bachelor’s degree in political science. 

After completing his education, Roberts started his career in journalism in 1985 at a CBS-owned station in San Francisco, where he worked for three years as a host and producer of a weekly newsmagazine show at KPIX-TV.

Then, he joined KATU-TV in Portland, Oregon as a reporter for three years, and later, WCBS-TV as an anchor and reporter.

Finally, Roberts joined the CBS network in 1993 as co-anchor of the overnight broadcast Up to the Minute, and since then, he has been working for CBS on various assignments, stories, and coverages.

During his tenure at CBS, he anchored CBS News reports from the 1994 Olympic Winter Games in Lillehammer, Norway, and provided live coverage of many other major international events, including signing a Middle East peace agreement and the inauguration of South African President Nelson Mandela.

He investigated destructive cults to human research subjects and exclusively interviewed New York City's "Preppy Killer" Robert Chambers and Max Factor heir Andrew Luster.

Roberts also created and co-executive produced the OWN network documentary Sag Harbor in 2015. The show gave a never-seen-before look inside one of America's most exclusive and historically significant African-American beach communities in New York's The Hamptons.

In 2017, the news anchor joined NBC Universal as an NBC special Dateline correspondent, anchoring the Oxygen series Killer Motive.

Over three decades, Roberts' substantial journalistic work has garnered him several awards and a comfortable net worth.  

The average salary of NBCUniversal reporters is $62,478, according to Glassdoor, whereas the average salary of CBS reporters is $66,000, according to Payscale

Given Roberts' pedigree and significant experience, it wouldn't be a stretch to assume his wages are significantly higher than those figures suggest.  

However, Roberts is yet to disclose the figures of his net worth, much like the details of his personal life.
