Robb joined the CBS21 news team in February 2010 with nearly 25 years of television news experience. He co-anchors the early and late evening newscasts with Tanya Foster. Robb is happy to back in Central Pennsylvania. He worked as an anchor and reporter for WHTM-TV from 1989 to 1992. Since then he has anchored at large market stations such as WFOR-TV in Miami, WABC-TV in New York, and WSVN-TV in Miami. But, throughout those travels and experiences, he says Central Pennsylvania was the best place to live and work on the news.
Robb is the recipient of a National Edward R. Murrow Award for Spot News coverage in 2006 as well as an Emmy Award for Outstanding Newscast in 1997. He has also received numerous Associated Press awards for excellence in news coverage. There is even a day named after him right here in Harrisburg.
Robb earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Arkansas. He and his wife, Stacey, who hails from Pittsburgh, live in Susquehanna Township and are very happy to be “home”.
Robb loves playing the guitar, singing karaoke, writing songs, and boating. He combined his love of the water and his love of writing when he became the Senior Editor of Southern Boating Magazine. He holds a USCG 50/100 ton Master/Mate (captain’s) license.
Robb's dedication to excellence brought him to the anchor position for Eyewitness News This Morning and Eyewitness News at Noon in 1996, which became the most-watched morning news in the Big Apple. He left the noon newscast in 1998 to anchor Eyewitness News at 5 PM. Robb helped the station develop and present "Crime Stoppers," a weekly report that helped police solve violent crimes in New York that appeared to be, at first, unsolvable. In January 1997, he traveled to London and brought back a special report on the use of hidden cameras to fight crime, which is now being done throughout New York. He was there when the World Trade Center was attacked, providing around-the-clock coverage in the following days and weeks.
His first full-time job was as a reporter at KODE-TV in Missouri. He quickly moved up to City Hall reporter, weekend anchor, and finally main weeknight anchor‑a job he truly loves. During his nearly six-year run at KODE-TV, he was one of the first smaller market reporters to cover a national political convention through a then-new technology called "satellite."
