KDUV/Visalia (Spirit 88.9) PD Rob Anthony announces their flagship morning show “Rob and John” will transition to “John and Rachel” with the addition of Rachel Nicks. John & Rob handled KDUV mornings for 2 years.
Rob will shift to full-time Program Director and weekend on-air fill in. John and Rachel celebrated Rob’s last day on mornings with send-off tribute messages from listeners and fellow staff, and by letting listeners decide how his character would be written off the show: falling through a trap door into a pit of hungry sharks, a thousand puppy kisses, or falling into a vat of Taco Bell nacho cheese sauce a la Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory.
Rob’s “Bad Dad Jokes” Jar of quarters was also officially retired and donated to Visalia’s Care Pregnancy Resource Center, along with a matching donation from Spirit 88.9 for $250.
Rob told HisAir today, “”I’m thankful for the incredible ride with the most talented, amazing cohosts I could ask for. I know the show is in good hands: theirs and mine, because I am still their boss.”
