It's worth giving credit to individuals who put their complete effort to thrive in the profession and don’t even care about the personal life. Likewise, we are talking here about a similar individual who has built an outstanding career but has a stagnant personal life.
Weekend morning anchor of WABC-TV’s Eyewitness News, Rob Nelson is a workhorse. Unlike his personal matters, his success and achievements aren’t hidden from people. Let’s discuss at some length about his career, relationships, and sexuality in our story.
Rob Nelson’s Professional Journey:
Rob Nelson started his journalistic career as a news anchor and reporter for WWL-TV in Orleans and newspaper Times-Picayune. He has worked in several media including overnight news programs for ABC’s World News Now and America This Morning which he left in March 2013. Rob earned a lot of popularity after he was replaced by John Muller for World news now.
Here is a video where Nelson talks about his departure and replacement by John in the “world news now.” He also confides that he will soon become a full-time network correspondent in WABC.
Rob Nelson replaced Phil Lipof and became the news anchor of Eye witness’s morning broadcast from January 2014. Rod is also the weekday reporter at WATC. He claims that he loves the part of reporting more than just the news presentation. He shared his love for saying in an interview.
“I enjoy the security of the desk, but I enjoy the real reporting on the street. This new position will focus on the latter. A desk is a comfortable place, but you do have to remind people and remind yourself that you’re still a reporter, and the real work happens on the street and not behind the desk. This is a chance to get back to the basics.”
Highly dedicated journalist, Rob has covered some biggest stories including Nelson Mandela’s release from hospital some months before his death, the arrest of Boston gangster Whitey Bugler, murder case against New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez on the charge of killing athlete Oscar Pistorius.
He also anchored on some popular stories like the death of Osama bin Laden, Colorado movie theater massacre, and the historically devastating earthquake in Japan of 2011 and so on. Moreover, Rob is covering the stories from the upcoming presidential election as well.
Does he have a Girlfriend?
He has not revealed anything about his personal life. Even at the age of 38, his love life seems stagnant. We don’t know if he was ever married or had a girlfriend. He was once linked with Diana Perez, a television anchor. However, the rumor may not be true as Diana is married and has two children. Well, what do you think does he have a girlfriend?? Or is he secretly married and had a wife??
Looking at Rob’s avoidance towards girls and relation, people suspect that he is gay. However, he has never spoken anything about his sexual orientation.
Rob Becomes Hilarious at Times:
Though his personal life may not be that exciting for us to read, he is quite a funny person. While going through his Instagram, we found a various funny post of him with Toni Yates, Michelle Charles Worth, and others. You want to enjoy those posts, don’t you??

Don Lemon Gets In a Feud With Bill O'Reilly Over Harassment Accusations
Reporters especially lead from their respective news outlets frequently get into arguments with each other. Sometimes it gets heated. However, this argument between Don and ex-Fox News icon Bill O'Reilly heated up quite fast.
Bill O'Reilly has always held a reputation for triggering Journalists and reporters and firing off shots everywhere. And with Don's old history of blowing up (like that one segment with Paris Dennard), it's no surprise Don got in a feud with O'Reilly after he insisted that Lemon refused to cover the news segment of the allegations about former National Security Adviser, Susan Rice.

To which Don responded stating that he didn't do so but added that he did cover Bill O'Reilly's sexual harassment cases.
False. I did not refuse to cover the story. But I did cover your sexual harassment allegations. Did you? https://t.co/sJ5mQQgx2E— Don Lemon (@donlemon) April 4, 2017
Don followed up on this story on his show stating,
“There is no evidence whatsoever that the Trump team was spied on illegally. There is no evidence that backs up the president’s original claim … And on this program tonight we will not insult your intelligence by pretending otherwise, nor will we aid and abet the people who are trying to misinform you, the American people, by creating a diversion.”
While we don't know what truly happened, the sexual harassment cases were covered by many News stations. Bill was also recently fired from Fox News after the settlement of the harassment cases.
Born on June 5, 1978, Rob Nelson is a native of New Jersey. He earned his graduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Rob started being active in the journalism sector since 2000.#WABC-TV #Reporter #Weekend Morning Anchor #World News Now #America This Morning on ABC
