LSU, Baton Rouge, La, (March 7, 2014) — The Association of Black Communicators will host New Orleans WWL morning anchor Sally-Ann Roberts for a luncheon on Tuesday, March 11 at 12:30 p.m. in the Curet Room of Hodges Hall.
Sally-Ann Roberts co-anchors the highest rated local morning news program in Louisiana. She and co-anchor Eric Paulson provide a blend of news and entertainment from 6 to 9 a.m. Monday through Friday on Channel 4’s Eyewitness Morning News. Roberts has been at WWL for nearly 40 years and is a well-known figure in New Orleans.
Roberts attended the University of Southern Mississippi where she received both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. She has done many things for her community, including co-founding the nonprofit Each One Save One in 1994 which has recruited, screened, trained and placed hundreds of mentors in schools and organizations across the metro area over the years.
“This is a great opportunity for mass communication students to learn from someone who has become an icon across the state of Louisiana,” said ABC president Bria Turner. “Roberts has worked her way up over the past 40 years to become a staple of New Orleans morning news and students of all concentrations can learn valuable lessons from her.”
ABC is a student organization in the Manship School striving to establish a strong union amongst black students pursuing communications.
