Heather Roberts fell in love with radio news when she plugged a mic into her parents’ stereo and created her first newscast at the ripe old age of 7. A native Oregonian, Heather graduated from Emerson College in Boston and returned home for her first job in a newsroom at KATU in Portland. After stints as a 911 dispatcher, banker and stay-at-home mom, Heather returned to the newsroom as a reporter and anchor for KFXO-TV in Bend, and later served on the inaugural news team at KOHD-TV.
She has deep ancestral roots in the High Desert, and when Heather and her husband moved their family to Redmond in 2006, they quickly fell in love with Central Oregon - Whether hiking Smith Rock, going for a run in Redmond’s Dry Canyon, or just out for a neighborhood walk with their pup, Scout.
Heather can be heard weekday mornings, alongside Frank "Da Count" Bonacquisti, 5am-9am on the Morning News.
