Openly gay newsman Thomas Roberts is returning to television as an anchor for CBS affiliate in Atlanta

Really have missed seeing Thomas Roberts on MSNBC since he and the cable network parted ways late last year.

Of course he’s movie star handsome but he is also a first-rate anchor and he represented the LGBT community so well as a fill-in anchor of NBC Nightly News (the first openly gay man to do so) and he was also frequently seen on The Today Show.

I’ve just seen a story in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Thomas is returning to Atlanta where he was once an anchor for CNN Headline News.

He has accepted a job co-anchoring the 4 p.m., 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts for CBS46 and the 9 p.m. newscast on sister station Peachtree TV. His co-anchor will be Sharon Reed.

Thomas tells AJC: “I consider myself an underdog. I think CBS46 is the same. Throughout my career, it’s been nice to prove people wrong.”

Good luck Thomas!

3 Remarks

  1. He’s a decent newsman. He is better suited for local news than national

  2. I like the statement “he’s movie star handsome” and he is that. Go luck sexy dude.

  3. Vacationing in Atlanta and sitting watching the News and find Thomas Roberts!!! I wasn’t even watching just listening and recognized his voice. I miss him so much on MSNBC. Always watched him when he was on Joe and Mika and the Today Show and loved it when he was on nightly news. They lost a good one when he left but glad he is somewhere doing the news he is so good. Congrats on your new job!!
