Teague played college football at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. While a journalist with the New York Times, in May 1961, Teague (as Robert Teague) appeared as an impostor on the night-time version of TO TELL THE TRUTH, round 1. Airing May 22, 1961, Teague was able to fool the panel by getting a majority of the votes while pretending to be Sergeant George Harris, an Air Force Judo instructor. Round 2 featured fellow journalist associated with the Times, Marianne Means, as the featured contestant along with two impostors.
He started at WNBC-TV in New York City in 1963 and became one of the city’s first black television journalists and went on to work as a reporter, anchorman and producer for more than three decades. He retired from WNBC-TV in 1991.
