  1. 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.

    1. Nathan,
      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.
      Many thanks!

  2. 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.

  3. 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
