Robbie grew up in northeast Texas, in a tiny town where her family’s history spans six generations.

After working in the business world for several years, Robbie received a Masters of Science in Journalism from Northwestern University’s Medill School. She completed her graduate work with a 4.0 GPA, earning her the school’s highest honor – the Harrington Award.

After graduate school, Robbie moved back to Texas where she began her career at KWTX-TV in Waco. Robbie later worked in Austin as an Education Reporter at KVUE-TV.

After a brief stop in Kansas, she returned to Dallas where she worked briefly at a local station before roaming the state with the News of Texas.
