Roberts worked with ESPN as a sportscaster for fifteen years, hosting SportsCenter and NFL PrimeTime before she made the transition to ABC. In 2013 she was awarded ESPN’s Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPY’s following her battles to overcome breast cancer and myelodysplastic syndrome for which she underwent a bone marrow transplant.
