Introduction

Nigel Robertson joined WYFF News 4 in December 1999 as a reporter working the night shift for the late news.

From June 2002 to February 2005, he was the anchor of the 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. weekend newscasts, and can currently be seen sharing the anchor desk with Gabrielle Komorowski each weekday evening on WYFF News 4 at 5. Nigel also doubles as a reporter several days a week.

Nigel earned his BA in Telecommunications from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio.

His focus of his studies was in Interpersonal Communications.

Nigel's professional career began at WTVG, the ABC affiliate in Toledo, Ohio. There, he worked as an assistant producer and weekend assignment editor, learning the ropes behind the camera.

His next move was to WCJB in Gainesville, Fla., where he worked as a one-man band reporter from their Ocala bureau.

Then in 1999, he joined WYFF 4 and began making his mark in the Upstate. In 2005, Nigel won an Emmy award for "Specialty Reporting", taking viewer inside Marine Boot camp. He has also been recognized by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences with Emmy nominations for "Business" and "Spot News Reporting".

Nigel has gotten the chance to bring our viewers many exclusive interviews. He is one of only a few journalists in the world to be granted a duel sit down interview with now President Barack and Michelle Obama.

After his Father was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) in 2011, Nigel made it his mission to advance care for people all over the state of South Carolina with Neurological Disorders. He teamed up with the Greenville Hospital System to create the state's first Neurological Institute helping patients with ALS, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's and other related diseases. As part of a team, he also helped create and organize the annual Greenville Polo Classic which funds the Neurological Institute.

When he is not working, Nigel can be found in church, in the kitchen cooking, spending time with his friends or reading any Financial Magazine he can get his hands on.

Nigel and his wife are proud parents of three little boys and a German Shepherd named "Cooper".
