Yeah, their management isn't good.
I don't know how you have that judgement, when I left Atlanta to come up here for family I was promised a job when I came back..  <_<

This is yet another crying shame. Bob was freaking awesome, especially when he worked with Dave, Mark, or Ray. I'm really going to miss him. :(

I couldn't agree more.

Let's wait and see about where he is or his whereabouts.

How about taking a little trip down memory lane with some pictures of Bob on the Weather Channel...



That picture with Bob and Lisa Mozer is actually from 1997. I didn't realize he's been around that long! Courtesy goes to Shaun for the video that came from.

Hopefully I'll be able to find some more pics soon.

Bob's one of the OCMs I remember while watching TWC in the mid-to-late 1990s...

Here are what screens I've got of Bob:




If Bob is indeed gone from TWC, and he left on good terms, maybe he'll be in the same boat as Warren Madden and appear as a freelance OCM.

I really hope so, but Warren only did what he did because he has time to do so with his current line of employment. Bob, in all likelihood, would seek another full-time job, but here's hoping he comes back to our living rooms/kitchens/bedrooms someday soon. :P

BTW, why can't any former TWC OCMs ever seem to come to Chicago these days?

Bob is definitely gone. Eboni Deon is doing First Outlook this morning. Monday was always Bob's spot, never Eboni's. They have no one else to fill his spot, apparently.

He better not have been fired because of his comedy.

Its a shame taht bob is gone. IMO, he and Dave were the best pairing. The two of them togetehr were always a hoot.

I highly doubt it. If that were the case, Dave would've been gone ages ago.

I don't think we actually know for sure if he was fired or if he left of his own free will.
