Bob DeCarlo

Bob is a native of New York City, although he was raised in Scranton, Pennsylvania and graduated from Penn State University. That’s also where he got his first radio experience – at the student-run campus radio station, WDFM. By 1970 his career was in high gear, working at WDRC in Hartford, and then Pittsburgh’s KQV, first in mid-days and then mornings where he would remain until just before the station switched to news.

In 1972, he teamed with Pittsburgh record producers Nick Cenci and Nick Kousaleos and recorded the hit “Convention ‘72” as The Delegates, with Bob as the voice of "Walter Klondike." It was a Dickie Goodman-type novelty break-in record that featured some of the top pop hits of 1972 and peaked at #8 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

When he left Pittsburgh, Bob’s travels took him to Atlanta (WGST), San Diego (KOGO), Miami (WIOD) and Tampa Bay (WUSA-FM “W-101”) where he and Judd Otis (Coursey) did the “The Bob & Judd Show” each morning from 1982-1996. He was also PD there for nine years.

After a fourteen year run at W-101, he moved to Dallas to do mornings at KLUV-FM and then headed back to Florida, stopping in Panama City. There, he served as operations manager for the Waitt Radio Group from 2000 to 2002 and at local station WVVE-FM (2004).

Today (2007) Bob is operations manager and does mornings for classic hits B-95 WBPC-FM in Panama City where he and his wife, Linda, own and operate three McDonald’s franchises.
