Hold onto your hats, everyone, because Robin Roberts‘ net worth has been revealed. What is it? Drum roll, please! The Good Morning America coanchor’s Celebrity Net Worth puts it at a cool $35 million. Not too shabby if you ask us!
The 58-year-old — who was born in Alabama but raised in Mississippi — is the youngest of four children. Robin’s parents, mom Lucimarian and dad Lawrence, welcomed her into the world on November 23, 1960. For college she attended Southeastern Louisiana University, playing basketball while there, and graduated cum laude in 1983 with a degree in communication. Early on, Robin took jobs at local news stations across the South before eventually making it to bigger markets in Nashville and Atlanta.
Years later into her career, in 1990, she joined ESPN as a sportscaster and, in 1995, began contributing to GMA. Robin, to her credit, balanced both jobs for quite some time, ultimately leaving the sports network behind. That’s because she was promoted to coanchor in 2005 alongside Diane Sawyer — who was later replaced by George Stephanopoulos in 2009. Michael Strahan has since joined the team, too.
Given the fact that Robin will be celebrating 15 years as coanchor next year, it should come as no surprise that she is making bank on the program. In fact, her salary for cohosting GMA is apparently a whopping $18 million per year. Among our favorite moments of her was when she cohosted Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s royal wedding in 2018.
This allows Robin — who has survived breast cancer and a bone marrow disease called myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) — to live a full life with her girlfriend. She has been with massage therapist Amber Laign since 2005, officially coming out as gay in 2013.
As for awards, she has amassed too many throughout her career to name. These include Emmys, a Peabody, the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism and the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. Robin is also an inductee to the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame.
Go on with your bad self, lady!
