I still have a “Vernon Gives Good Radio” WNBC football jersey. I don’t wear it often.
Bob Vernon is my uncle believe it or not and he is still in NC but i don’t believe he is in Raleigh. If you want more info you can email me.
I was in contact with Bob last year, but lost both his e-mail addresses when my laptop was stolen. Is it possible to ask him to write me so I can re-establish communications with him? We are friends from the broadcasting profession, and Bob was kind enough to do some work for me.
For a while Bob Vernon had his own website where he posted a lot of the stuff he did when he was at WGAR in Cleveland & WNBC in NYC. Last post he had on his site was sometime late 2009/2010 and that he was writing a book about his broadcasting days. Now his website is gone and no idea if he is even alive at this point. I hope so because I would LOVE to read his book.
I knew a bob vernon. he was a vietnam vet and had been shot in vietnam. last knew him in 1971 and his parents lived in raleigh, nc. he was a bob vernon jr or a robert junior vernon. I wonder if this is him. I’d love to know if he’s still living
Rest in peace, Bob Vernon. So sad that it took news of your passing to drive me to this check.
