Anchor/Reporter at KETV
Introduction

A journalist in Nebraska for nearly 30 years, Rob started his career in broadcasting while still a student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Rob's been a part of the KETV Newswatch 7 team since 1992.

He was first hired as KETV's Capital Bureau Chief, then added weekend co-anchoring duties. Since 1995, Rob has been KETV?s main evening news anchor.

A winner of numerous broadcast journalism awards, Rob says his first love in television is reporting -- telling stories that affect people, that they can understand and from which they learn.

Rob's involved in several charitable organizations and feels being part of the community is an important part of being a civic leader.

Married, and the father of three, if you don't see Rob on KETV, he's probably playing with the kids, working in the yard, or on the golf course. Probably in that order.
