Roberts has been with Seven News Melbourne for eight years, but has decades of covering sports events for the network including Summer and Winter Olympics, AFL, NBL, the Australian Open, Spring Racing Carnival and major golf tournaments. He leaves to join FOX Footy.
Last night presenter Peter Mitchell told him, “My heart is heavier than Santa’s sack.”
“There’s probably a line to follow that but we won’t go there,” Roberts quipped.
“Can I just thank the viewers because without them we’re nothing? We’ve done so much over so many years whether it’s the children’s hospital, grand finals or Olympics Games, tennis or golf, they’ve been fantastic.
“To everyone I just say thank you.”
Today Tonight also paid tribute to his years on the network. A stellar career.
