Bob spent many of his 55 years in the broadcasting business as a station owner and operator. Although most of that career took place in upstate New York, from 1978 to 1982 he was an owner/partner and general manager for Brooksville’s WWJB.
By 2002, the Bellefonte, PA native was largely retired and wanted to move back to Brooksville. He did just that and re-connected with WWJB on a part-time basis, interviewing local officials and personalities for a Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday afternoon talk show and hosting an hour of big band music on Sunday nights.
Robert "Bob" Penrod passed away August 27, 2013 at the age of 73.
