Does it really matter? Bob and Ed both should have been gone years ago.

I lived in Shreveport in the 1980s and liked Bob. He stopped at our office a few times, and seemed like a pleasant guy. Yes, I am sure that he is now considered an antique and not like the younger sports reporters, but his reporting style and knowledge when I watched him was fine and enjoyable.

Yeah, I think the age factor is what got ol' Bob. Stations everywhere like the younger anchors for obvious reasons. I think Bob has a busy life outside of KSLA tho'. He speaks to a lot of different groups needing a speaker and is well traveled in addition to his sports knowledge. Ed (Duranczyk) was also the senior weatherman for the area and once you get to be a certain age you're out. In addition, both were probably at the top of their salary range which meant to fire and hire (or retain) cheaper.

The young guys just can't hold their jock strap. Definitely the passing of a era . I will miss the storytelling

I've seen him at several Haynesville football games and talked to him one time. He retired a while back and a nice looking lady took over. It wasn't long, she was gone and he was back.

Bob's okay but I knew guys who worked at KSLA back in the day and let's just say that Bob was always very focused on Bob.
