Cokie Roberts

Cokie Roberts, a daughter of politicians who went on to become a prominent journalist and political commentator, winning three Emmy Awards during a long career with NPR and ABC News, died September 17 in Washington.

Roberts died Tuesday due to complications from breast cancer, according to a family statement.

"We are hopeful that Cokie now goes to join her parents, former Members of Congress Hale and Lindy Boggs, her siblings Barbara, Tom and William, who predecease her, and her God", her family added.

"Over the summer, I have had some health issues which required treatment that caused weight loss". She was named a "Living Legend" by the Library of Congress in 2008.

NPR President John Mohn quickly issued a statement as well. She wrote two with her husband, one about interfaith families and one about their marriage, titled "From This Day Forward".

Will said that although Washington is a "town of short leases", with people constantly coming and going, Roberts represented the permanent Washington, a kind of figure who was constant through decades of political change: "The Washington not often denounced by people who denounce Washington because they don't know it exists", Will said.

Cokie Roberts, a legendary award-winning journalist and political commentator, is dead at 75. She made a name for herself as a young Capitol Hill reporter for NPR before joining ABC News in 1988.

She also published six books, many of them best-sellers. "In terms of career, I've been lucky to have many interesting jobs and loved a lot of them".

As a commentator, Roberts sometimes walked a line that threatened to eclipse her role as a dispassionate journalist.

"I had always been a good writer, and so I started reporting and writing".

"[Trump] is one of the least qualified candidates ever to make a serious run for the presidency", Roberts and her husband wrote.

Roberts is survived by her husband Steve V. Roberts and her children Lee Roberts and Rebecca Roberts, her grandchildren Regan, Hale and Cecilia Roberts and Claiborne, Jack and Roland Hartman, along with nieces, nephews, and cousins.
