DailyMailTV made a splash when it first arrived on television screens in 2017, scoring the highest rated national debut of any syndicated newsmagazine since 2007.

DailyMailTV brings to life the world’s most popular news website DailyMail.com on television. Working hand in hand, it has consistently broken news stories that have set the agenda, including Ghislaine Maxwell’s hideout in Massachusetts, Asia Argento’s first interview after the death of Anthony Bourdain, the collapse of Sex and the City 3, the first interview with Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle, and Lisa Vanderpump announcing she was departing the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

In May 2019, DailyMailTV won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Entertainment News Program at the 46th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

‘DailyMailTV really stands out and you can’t find anything else like it in news. Plus, when you consider it comes from the global brand of DailyMail.com you know this show has few equals out there, if any!’ Roberts continued.

A trusted and respected veteran of television news for over 25 years, Roberts has worked at a variety of local, cable, syndicated and national platforms. He has previously reported for CBS News and The Insider/Entertainment Tonight in Los Angeles, CNN in Atlanta and several local stations in Portsmouth, Virginia, Ft. Myers, Florida, Lincoln, Nebraska and San Diego.

‘After 25 amazing years in TV News, whether as an anchor or correspondent, I’ve had some pretty incredible ”career first’s.” But this is the first time I’ve ever been this excited to start and just get to work.

‘These are really important times, with very important stories that need to be covered, correctly. Plus, I’m just like you, I can’t stand BS and hypocrites. So let’s get started because we’ve got plenty of work to do!’ Roberts said.
