Roberts Rues Loss

April 17, 2009

But which one? Yes, Ashton Kutcher gave Goliath CNN a smack-down early this morning in  its race to become the first to reach one million Twitter followers. However, American Morning’s John Roberts seemed to see the loss as a personal metaphor. After co-anchor Kiran Chetry acknowledged CNN’s defeat, John  put up his hands and said, “Some you lose, and some you lose.”

“Exactly!” rejoined Kiran. John continued, “The story of my life: I lose everything I touch.” Kiran laughed, “We’ll explain more of that in a second: Not that, but the Twitter situation.”

After his Easter weekend in Pensacola with his daughter, was the respected three-time-Emmy-Award-winning veteran journalist lamenting the loss of her mother from whom he split over a year ago? Or has his loss been even more recent? According to TVNewser sorces, Roberts has been seriously dating CNN anchor Kyra Phillips and even took her to his induction into the Canadian Broadcaster Industry Hall of Fame in  Toronto to meet his two children.

Roberts: On KP Duty

March 16, 2009

After a year of being back on the single circuit, American Morning’s silver-haired alpha male John Roberts is seemingly ready to settle down again. According to TVNewser sources, AM’s “explorer” extraordinaire is now paired with, no, not his “TV wife” Kiran Chetry, but with her AM substitute Kyra Phillips based in Atlanta. Reportedly, the CNN anchors have been dating since December and have become rather close lately. According to TVNewser tipsters, Kyra met Roberts’ children in Toronto last weekend when Roberts was inducted was into the Canadian Broadcast Industry Hall of Fame and Roberts is planning to meet Kyra’s clan on a family vacation out West.

Apparently, CNN’s Roberts and Kyra are insuring that Hotlanta lives up to its name.
