“The pictures are created by the listener, with a little help from the broadcaster.
The pictures are perfect. If you're showing pictures, different things in that picture can distract from the spoken word.”
— Bob Edwards
Before becoming the host of This Morning, America's First News (formerly known as The Wall Street Journal This Morning) in 2005, I spent several years on local radio, including in New York City, where I was a news anchor, reporter, and sportscaster for stations like WCBS, WINS, WABC, and WOR. Before that, I learned most of the broadcast basics at WCTC, in New Brunswick, NJ.
This Morning, America’s First News is heard on roughly 300 radio stations across the country. A podcast of the show is heard around the world.
In 2011, I became part of the Public Address team for the New York Football Giants. From roughly 2003-2005, I was the backup announcer for the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. From 2013-2018 I handled P.A. duties for Army football at legendary Michie Stadium in West Point, New York.
I also pitch in as the public address announcer for local high school football and basketball games, as well as various Senior Night events.
As part of my radio duties, I also perform voiceovers and endorsements for countless clients, including Dell, Geico, Harrys, Indeed, Capital One, Goldman Sachs, Novo, Shari’s Berries, and Wild Alaska Company, to name a few. I'm also a guest lecturer in marketing and broadcast journalism classes.
