Bob joined Orioles Nation in May 2012. He grew up a fan of the Orioles, Washington Bullets, and Dallas Cowboys. He graduated from North Carroll High School in Hampstead in 1986, wanting to be the Orioles shortstop. Since that position was occupied, Bob went into radio and spent 20 years on the air in Baltimore, Harrisburg, and York, PA. He currently lives in Savannah, Georgia, where he handles the public address duties for the Savannah Sand Gnats, low-A affiliate of the New York Mets. He handles game recaps for ON.
