BOB BROOKS

The quintessential journalist with a career spanning more than 70 years, Bob Brooks’ passion for sports lead him to cover everything from high school athletics to the Olympics. Bob’s “folksy” yet professional manner put everyone instantly at ease. Bob was a ten time winner of the Iowa Sportscaster of the Year Award, and was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in South Bend, Indiana in 2004. The press box at Kingston Stadium is named in his honor.

Bob passed away on June 25, 2016 at the age of 89. He will always be a beloved member of the KMRY family.
