Summary
Entrepreneur Steven Craig Roberts was born on April 11, 1952 in St. Louis, Missouri. Roberts attended Clark University in Massachusetts. In 1974, while attending law school, his brother, Michael V. Roberts, began Roberts-Roberts and Associates, which became the brothers' business and construction management firm in St. Louis. Roberts graduated with dual J.D. and M.A. degrees in 1978, and the following year, became an alderman in St. Louis. In 1981, Roberts and his brother began Roberts Broadcasting, a new branch of the duo's business empire. During the building of these stations, the brothers became more familiar with the business behind construction, inspiring the founding of Roberts Construction Company in 1989. In 1999, the first Sprint PCS-affiliated Roberts Wireless store opened in Jefferson City, Missouri, the only PCS Company in the country that was entirely African American-owned. The Roberts Companies became a $460 million, thirty-four-company organization, including aviation and real estate development divisions.
