For more than 15 years, Bobby has been covering sports in Arkansas from the Razorbacks to high schools and has become a mainstay in the community.

Bobby joined the 5NEWS team in 2012 after graduating from the University of Central Arkansas, where he earned a degree in mass communications and was a member of the Bears football team.

Not everyone gets to do what they love for a living but Bobby is doing just that. Growing up the son of a coach, Bobby has loved the sidelines since he was a little kid and that passion has done nothing but grow through the years.
