Sally-Ann Roberts Anchors Her Last Show in New Orleans

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

An era is over at WWL.

Sally-Ann Roberts anchored her last morning show on the CBS affiliate in New Orleans Wednesday morning after 41 years.

Special guests visited the longtime anchor to say goodbye including Governor John-Bel Edwards, friends, former co-workers and her family including her sister and Good Morning America host, Robin Roberts.


“You all have been a dominant morning show in this beautiful country, but you embraced New Orleans — and thanks, New Orleans, for embracing our sister back,” Robin Roberts said.

Roberts joined the station in 1977. Her final words to the viewers were ones of encouragement before signing off.

“I love you all. I’ll pray for you all. The best is yet to come. … The best is yet to come.”
