WASHINGTON -- The National Association of Broadcasters today released a statement mourning the loss of Robert "Bob" V. Doll, who passed away on June 1 in San Antonio. Doll boasted a 59-year career in the radio business, working as disc jockey, manager, owner and consultant for radio stations throughout the Midwest. He launched the Small Market Radio Newsletter in 1983, and continued to contribute to the publication after selling it in 1993.
Commenting on Doll's death, NAB Executive Vice President Dennis Wharton issued the following statement:
"The entire radio community has lost a true friend and great ambassador for small market stations. Bob's encyclopedic knowledge of small-town radio was surpassed only by his friendly demeanor. His presence at this year's Radio Show will be sadly missed, but he won't soon be forgotten."
