Legendary ABC News political journalist Cokie Roberts dies at age 75

Legendary ABC News political journalist Cokie Roberts has died due to complications from breast cancer on Tuesday. She was 75 years old.

Cokie, whose full name was Mary Martha Corinne Morrison Claiborne Roberts, had a storied career over 40 years in television, public radio, and publishing. A true pioneer for women in journalism, Cokie was well-regarded for her insightful analysis of politics and policy in Washington, D.C., countless newsmaking interviews, and, notably, her unwavering support for the generations of young women - and men - who would follow her in her footsteps.


My prayers of comfort for the family...

What a shame. I remember her from decades ago. She had a really long successful career. Fortunately a lot of it is preserved on media of all sorts and her reputation will live on.

I wasn't a fan of Cokie, but now that her suffering has ended may she rest in peace.

I never agreed at all with Cokie's politics, but, I respected her for being one of the women pioneers of her profession and contributing to women's acceptance in the media.

I listen to NPR every day & I have never known what her political ideology was.

Iíll miss her analysis.
