WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) spoke on the floor of the U.S. Senate this afternoon to recognize the career of longtime New Orleans TV host Sally-Ann Roberts.   Sally-Ann Roberts retired today after working for WWL-TV in New Orleans for the past 41 years and spending the last 26 years anchoring the morning show.

“For the past 26 years, Sally-Ann was as much a part of the morning routine in New Orleans as eggs and beignets.  Sally-Ann is an icon, and I don’t use that word lightly.  She’s had an extraordinary career as a broadcast journalist, and I know she’s excited about what comes next.  She will truly be missed,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “Audience members like me are just grateful that she devoted such a lengthy chapter of her life to Louisiana and the great city of New Orleans.”
