Van On Bob 979 FM Mornings

Van was born in Charleston, South Carolina, as were Rhett Butler and Steven Colbert. After bagging groceries in junior high he decided to try radio. If it doesn't work out, he knows he can fall back on his grocery store experience.

Myrtle Beach, Youngstown, Dayton and Detroit were among the cities that sat through Van's radio show. The Motor City has yet to recover. BOB is crazy about the energy and enthusiasm Van brings to his station and likes the fact that he always loses at Rock Paper Scissors.

Matt Miller Afternoons

Matt grew up in Peoria but has spent a lot of time in the Twin Cities area spending time with his grandparents, aunts and uncles, and many cousins who live here. Matt has been polluting the airw….. that is...entertaining Central and Western IL for almost 20 years with stops in Bloomington-Normal, the Quad-Cities, Peoria, Macomb, Canton, and Monmouth. After stalking BOB…… er uh, asking BOB many, many times for a job, BOB relented and gave him one. Matt is really excited to working for BOB and is looking forward to meeting all of BOB'S Buddies.

In his spare time Matt likes to spend time with his wife and their four-legged children (a dog and 2 cats). Matt likes to cook and is currently obsessed with perfecting his recipe for boiling water. He swears he’s almost got it. Matt also likes to sing karaoke, much to the dismay of the people forced to listen, and he dabbles in stand-up comedy. Also, much to the dismay of the people forced to listen.
