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.
