    Roberts came out as gay in December.

    The normally private anchorwoman made the announcement in a Facebook post, as she reflected on a "critical milestone" in her treatment for myelodysplastic syndrome, saying she was grateful for her "longtime girlfriend" Amber Laign, among others.

    Laign is a licensed massage therapist who specializes in working with people recovering from injuries.

    The two met on a blind date nine years ago.
