A pioneer in Chicago's television sportscasting community and longtime WBBM-TV weekend sportscaster. Mr. Roberts was found unconscious in his office at WBBM-TV in Chicago less than 1 hour before he was to go on the air on the evening news, and though efforts were made to revive him at the station, and at a nearby hospital, he was pronounced dead at that hospital a short time later. He was a well respected and liked man both by his audience, and by his peers.
