Robert Vito was an American television correspondent and bureau chief for CNN, his role as bureau chief expanded to Los Angeles, Miami, Rome and Detroit. In 1968, he became a general assignment reporter at WAEO-TV, in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. On November 17, 1968, an airplane with three passengers crashed into the transmission tower, killing all three passengers. The station was knocked off the air for nearly a year. Vito was hired by Milwaukee-based WISN-TV in 1969, working as an investigative reporter under the name "Bob Viverito." He left WISN in 1973 to take a job with WWJ-TV to do "investigative reporting and some anchoring." In 1975, Vito interviewed former Teamster President Jimmy Hoffa; it would be Hoffa's last interview, as he disappeared two weeks later. He left WWJ-TV and joined CNN, becoming the first Detroit bureau chief in 1982. He later became CNN's bureau chief in Rome, Los Angeles, and finally, Miami.
