Robin Reed Anchor WDBJ7

Robin Reed

Emcee

Robin has been with WDBJ7 since March of 1982.

Robin Reed’s path to television began with a passion for baseball but a major league career was not to be. TV sports reporting was the logical extension but when the opportunity to present weather in Roanoke came along, Robin knew he had found a new hometown. 

Robin has served as an instructor at Virginia Western Community College and for the last 7 years has taught meteorology and communication courses at Virginia Tech. He has become one of the most sought-after speakers in our area. 

In February of 2017, Robin was asked to take over the 6 P.M. anchor chair for the departing Chris Hurst.  Viewers appreciate having a familiar face presenting the news and Robin is enjoying the new challenge.
