We appreciate all of the emails and calls that have been coming in.

Bob’s love for the genre, its people and its history has always been evident in that warm, rich voice, and the combination has given him both a vast, loyal audience and legendary status within the industry. He has twice been named the CMA’s National Broadcast Personality of the Year and his show received Billboard’s Network/Syndicated Program of the Year award no fewer than 16 times. Bob also received the ACM’s National Broadcast Personality of the Year Award in 2007 and has been voted National Air Personality of the Year for the three past years by Country Radio Broadcasters and Country Aircheck. He was chosen as the recipient of the 2012 President’s Award by the CRB and, perhaps most tellingly, he was inducted in 1998 into the Country Music DJ Hall of Fame.

Listen to a touching tribute to Bob above.
