She's been a reporter on local newscasts and she is currently a correspondent for and the weekend host of "Access Hollywood," one of those glitzy shows about TV and movie stars that have a tendency to focus on their personal lives as much as their professional ones.
Her local TV news credits include stints as a reporter and an anchor on KEYE-TV in Austin, Texas and for WSVN-TV in Miami. As a medical reporter and weekend anchor for WISN-TV in Milwaukee, Ms. Robinson did a series on women and cancer, which got her an Associated Press award, and she received an American Women in Radio and Television award for her profiles on important women in the Austin area for KEYE-TV.
Ms. Robinson got her start on WGPR-TV in her native Detroit, which was the first black-owned television station in America. She is a alumna of Cass Technical High School, the Motor City's famed magnet school for creative students. (Other Cass alumni include Diana Ross and Kenya Moore, two earlier honorees on this blog.)
