Bob Peters is one of the true gentlemen in our industry. His ‘tour of duty’ is not only impressive; it is confirmation of a very talented media broadcaster.

For me, Bob is one of the few people I wish I had worked with earlier in my career. His generosity, great attitude, and magnificent vocal pipes have been my pleasure to record, edit and re-flangelate in many promos and commercials in recent times.

It was a few years ago when I discovered Bob’s personal health battle that my respect and admiration for this man increased dramatically.

After recently reading a local newspaper story on Bob, I reached out and asked him politely if he would share some of his story with us.

Some of the best radio ads you'll ever hear

In 2008, I made a decision that I would use my influence and connections within the industry to better connect and promote the creative and production people.

My hope was that I could help to showcase the amazing people and work we do in radio (particularly production) and ensure the growth and training process was available for the future.

In simple terms, I wanted to help people share their work and ideas as this is still one of the most beneficial ways we all learn and are inspired to excel.
