Rob grew up in the Mount Washington Valley town of North Conway, NH where he landed a job in radio while still in high school. A few years later, he moved to Maine in 2000 to further his career with WCYY. After an amazing sixteen years, he decided to try something different. Rob has always found it rewarding to help people. That, along with having an interest in real estate from a young age, it only made sense to follow his instincts and become a real estate agent. He was wondering if and when “the itch” to get back in the media field would come. Well, it did and he finally found a way to “scratch it”. He is now back on WCYY doing what he loves. After his media portion of the day is done, he jumps in a phone booth, Clark Kent style, and transforms back into a real estate agent - the best of both worlds!
