Bob Rathbun‘s broadcast career started at the ripe, old age of 12 when he was asked to broadcast a half-inning of an American Legion baseball game. And he hasn’t stopped since!
Since that night at Newman Park in Salisbury, North Carolina, Bob has gone on to become one of the most respected and popular sports broadcasters in the country.
Annually, Bob broadcasts well over 100 games and events. He is the signature voice of Fox Sports Net South, handling the networks’ main play-by-play responsibilities for the Atlanta Braves and the Atlanta Hawks. He also announces numerous college football, basketball, and baseball games for FSN South, as well as reporting for the Southern Sports Report.
Bob is also back for his 14th season calling the action for Atlantic Coast Conference basketball on the Jefferson-Pilot/Raycom regional network. A seven-time state sportscaster of the year in Virginia and Georgia, Bob has garnered three Emmy awards for his broadcasting excellence.
In 2004, Bob expanded his work into the realm of motivation, leadership and team building, as a host and speaker. Bob is also a past host of Nightingale-Conant’s Success Streams audio series. Now, Bob has taken what he has learned as an announcer and interviewer and put it all together as a keynote speaker and lecturer.
