Robert joined ABC 10News in June of 2009. He has since proven to be one of the most versatile and multi-skilled members of the team. He currently anchors 10News Weekend Mornings and during the week, he enjoys reporting on San Diego's most unique and memorable stories.
Before his move to the anchor desk, Robert forecasted the weather on 10News This Morning and 10News Midday. Since Robert knows weather well, he's still a valuable asset to the 10News Pinpoint Weather team and fills in whenever the need arises. He's a graduate of the Broadcast Meteorology Program at Mississippi State University.
Robert has also forecasted the weather and covered environmental stories in the Pacific Northwest where he worked for KOMO-TV in Seattle. Prior to that, he worked for the NBC affiliate in Las Vegas and for KTLA in Los Angeles.
Robert was no stranger to San Diego prior to coming to 10News. From 2000-2006, he worked as a reporter for KFMB and KSWB. During that time, he reported live on many big stories including several Southern California wildfires, President Bush's historic "Mission Accomplished" speech on board the USS Abraham Lincoln, the disappearance of little Danielle Van Dam, the Westerfield Trial and the Santana High School shooting.
The Associated Press Television Radio Association recognized Robert's skills by naming him "Reporter of the Year" among colleagues in the Pacific Northwest and Southwest. In addition, Robert also anchored several Emmy-award winning newscasts for 10News.
Robert's career in broadcast news began straight out of high school in Guam (Cable TV & KUAM), where he was born and raised. While getting on-the-job training, he attended the University of Guam. He later transferred to Pepperdine University in Malibu to obtain his Bachelor's degree. After graduating, he worked in Oxnard-Ventura (KADY), Salinas-Monterey (KCBA & KION).
Robert loves living in Southern California -- it's closer to the beach, sunshine, great food, relatives and friends.
