In 1963, at age 19, she was named Miss North Carolina.[1] Robertson credits her reign as the catalyst for her career.[2] Her anecdotes can be heard daily on XM Radio's Channel 98, Laugh USA and Sirius Radio's Blue Collar Comedy channel 103 (XM 97) and Laugh Break channel 105. She bases her humor on real-life situations.[3]
