Bob Leighton


I graduated from the University of Notre Dame. My background includes 20+ years in the computer industry developing software for the radio industry at CBSI/Marketron.

Why you love your work:

I love many aspects of radio. Being the pulse of the community with news, weather, and sports information, the entertainment part of playing music, and finally, our station being the center of events with our on-air talents being the emcees and more.

Personal Motto:

Stolen from Zig Ziglar: You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.

Favorite Song of All-time and Why:

I like the entire Bat Out of Hell album by Meatloaf, but if I had to pick a song it would be Paradise By The Dashboard Light. I thought it was clever the way that song used Phil Rizzuto’s metaphor calling a game.
