I worked for Bob in the early '70s at WRMF in Titusville, FL. I was still in high school and this was my first radio job. I remember Bob as warm,caring and always having a kind word to say. My sincere sympathies to his wife and family.
I met Bob Bright in 1972 when my church at the time had a weekly radio program on WRMF, 1050 AM on Queen St, Titusville FL. A year later I ran it by him about starting another station in town (noncommercial). He pulled out a stack of paper from a drawer and said, here's just one day's worth of rules and paper to keep up with. "You don't know what you're getting into." It was brutal but honest. I have always respected Bob and his crew that I met: Charlie Lyle, Al Richard, and of course Titusville's Icon: June Carter.
I worked at WRMF for Bob Bright from 1961-1965 doing the logs(traffic) and general office work.June Black Carter worked there from 1957 till about the mid 70's' having her own morning show and then doing Swap Shop. We couldn't have asked for a more fair or kinder boss. Bob and I shared the same birthday and have kept in contact ALL these years! Our deepest sympathy to wife, Betty, his daughters and sons-in-law
The newspaper article left out that Bob was general manager of WRMF radio in Titusville, a town located near Cape Canaveral, Florida from 1957 to 1977. He was the best general manager I ever had during my years in broadcasting. I served as his news director for several years. My deepest sympathy to his wife and family...Jim "Biff" Burns.
