Personal Life – Is Robert Costa Married With Wife and Kids?
Robert Costa’s coverage of presidential campaigns has earned him much praise and, more recently, he was appointed Washington Week Moderator on PBS, making him the eighth Washington Week Moderator in 50 years of history. Prior to this last appointment, he was a panelist and guest moderator for Washington Week since 2014.
Costa seems to lead a very private life and has so far kept his personal business under the radar despite an active life in social media. Although there are reports that he is married with children, we have no evidence to confirm this information because there is no record of his past relationships or his love life.
Costa depicts the life of a person who is more focused on his profession than having a girlfriend or an affair and therefore his personal life remains a mystery to the media.
In addition, the exact value of his salary and net worth is unknown. But for a successful journalist at the height of his or her career, we know that he or she is well paid and probably has a net worth in millions of dollars. He lives in Washington, D.C.
More recently, Robert Costa had lost weight, which is clearly visible on his face. According to a recent interview, it is assumed that he did this by dieting rather than exercising. Although his new look is not considered a killer physique, Costa now has a more attractive physical appearance than ever before.
