Brian Roberts

Senior Executive Producer
Brian Roberts 1

Brian began his career at MotorWeek as an intern with Lisa Barrow in the summer of 1993 while attending Towson University, where he studied Mass Communications and played on the football team. Since then, he has held numerous positions within the show, from Production Assistant to his current role as Senior Executive Producer.

Brian is also one of the show’s high-performance test drivers, so he’s always aiming for the perfect apex and never minds running one more lap so the videographers can capture that perfect shot. He has accrued thousands of laps on race tracks such as Roebling Road, Summit Point, Pocono, Willow Springs, Leguna Seca, and Circuito de Jerez.

In the 29 years since Brian joined the MotorWeek staff, he has driven thousands of new cars, attended hundreds of vehicle press launches, traveled to more than 35 states and has been on assignment in Japan, Scotland, Austria, Portugal, and Italy….just to name a few. Not surprisingly, Brian’s favorite times at MotorWeek have occurred on some of those trips: Driving a 2003 350Z on Nissan’s test track with the chief engineer in the passenger seat … then switching seats for a demo of the car’s full potential; spending a day driving the entire 1998 Ferrari lineup at the Fiorano Circuit in Italy; driving a Bentley Flying Spur in Scotland and spending the evening in a historic castle; And finally, taking the controls of the Goodyear blimp, flying above a practice session for the Indy 500.

Brian resides in Harford County, Maryland with his wife, Monica, and teenage sons Kevin and Jason. A peek inside his garage would reveal a pristine Harley-Davidson V-Rod, alongside a restored 1968 Cadillac Deville convertible, which may look familiar to longtime viewers from its numerous guest appearances on MotorWeek.
