Well, if I remember correctly, Bob Lobel could make
sports interesting for the non-sports fan (women?) and
yet still had the respect of the die-hards. He had a
good sense of humor and had such good chemistry with
Liz Walker for all those years. I think he had a
lighthearted good natured way about him that endeared
him to many. Plus that "boy next door" looks. That's
I think that thought gets expressed whenever someone
gets entrenched into a market for a long time like
Lobel. There are new people, new generation,
etc...that don't feel the same connection with the
legendary host. I always felt this with Dave Maynard
and Carl Desuze. I never understood their appeal.
I remember when I lived in Hartford, people told me
Bob Steele on WTIC was the big morning show in
Hartford. I couldn't wait to listen....but my
response was...."huh"? Anyone else ever hear him?
This is a guy who announced the antenna pattern
change! And got a 20 share!
You rock. That's why Blockbuster's offering you one month of Blockbuster Total Access, No Cost.
