Oregon Art Beat Producer/Reporter

Robe Imbriano

In over 25 years in television, Oregon Art Beat producer/reporter Robe Imbriano has worked with everyone from Peter Jennings to Bryant Gumbel, Diane Sawyer to Oprah Winfrey, winning a few awards along the way.

He was part of the original ABC News production teams of Primetime Live, Day One and World News Now. For public television, he’s aired stories for Now With Bill Moyers, Nova scienceNOW, History Detectives and Life 360. He’s a charter member of The Documentary Group.

And Robe has more than once had to pinch himself while interviewing Supreme Court Justices about the Constitution for the Annenberg Classroom, covering Grandmaster Flash with Robert Krulwich, or holding Lena Horne’s hand backstage. He feels the same way around some of the incredible talent here in Oregon. 

He lives in Portland with his wife, Helena Huang, daughter Lu, and dog, Ella.
