Jane Robelot, a news anchor at WYFF, Hearst’s NBC affiliate in Greenville, S.C., has been honored with a Masters Award from the South Carolina Broadcasters Association (SCBA).
The Masters Award recognizes the lifetime achievements of on-air broadcasters who have made significant contributions to broadcasting in South Carolina and who personify high broadcast industry standards within their communities.
“No one embodies service to community the way Jane does,” says John Humphries, WYFF’s GM. “She covers the stories of her hometown with the utmost journalistic integrity and heart. The work she has done in this market and on a national level make her more than worthy of being a Masters Award recipient.”
The award was presented to Robelot at the SCBA’s Awards of Distinction dinner on Friday, January 26 in Columbia.
“This award means the world to be as it comes from my beloved home state where I began my career in broadcast news, and where I will one day conclude my on-air career,” Robelot says. “I’ve been afforded so many amazing opportunities throughout my career in local and national news, but it is my sincere hope that the stories I covered added insight, uncovered disparities, or at least simply brought a smile to the viewers and listeners who received them.”
Robelot joined WYFF 4 in 2007, contributing stories and hosting the award-winning Chronicle program. In 2017, she was named full-time anchor for WYFF News 4 at 4 p.m.
Prior to anchoring at WYFF, Robelot was a national anchor and cohost at CBS This Morning.
She also worked in the Philadelphia and Atlanta markets, before moving back to her hometown of Greenville with her husband, former CBS News cameraman Mario DeCarvalho and son George.
Robelot has received numerous awards for her work in broadcasting, including two national Emmys for journalistic excellence and a Peabody Award for her work at WYFF on Chronicle: Paul’s Gift. She has a heart for community involvement, speaking at a wide range of events around the area. Read more about Robelot’s many accomplishments here.
