Robert joined NEWS10 in August 2011 after spending time in several other markets. He grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and graduated from Duquesne University in 2004 with a bachelor's degree in journalism.
Two days after graduating he moved to San Diego, California to report for "The Coast News," a weekly newspaper based in Encinitas. In 2006, he transitioned into TV, taking a job with KUSI as a writer for the morning program, "Good Morning San Diego." Robert also worked briefly as a writer and producer with KGTV, the ABC affiliate in San Diego, before landing his first on-air reporting job with KDBC in El Paso Texas in 2007. The biggest issue he covered while in the Sun City was the deadly drug wars taking place across the border in Juarez Mexico.
In 2009, Robert moved to Hog Nation, Fayetteville, Arkansas where he reported for KFSM. Fayetteville news circled largely around the University of Arkansas, specifically their sports teams. However, day in and day out, weather was always the first thing on everyone's mind. He covered everything from snow storms, to tornadoes, to earthquakes, to flash flooding, to 112 degree heat.
In August 2011, Robert decided to move all the way back east and take a job with NEWS10 ABC in Albany. He is looking forward to getting acquainted with the people and places that make the Capital Region great.
Robert is an avid sports fan and especially enjoys rooting for his hometown Pittsburgh teams. His favorite team is the Steelers and he actually attended Super Bowl XLV in Dallas. His other hobbies include bocce ball and traveling. Gambling is also a guilty pleasure, especially Craps in Las Vegas and friendly Texas Holdem' games with friends. His favorite TV show is "Dexter" and his favorite book is "The Catcher in the Rye."
