Episode 38: Rob West – Radio News Director (Extended Version)

Rob West is one of the most trusted voices in Kankakee County when it comes to getting the most accurate and up to date local news. Rob is currently the News Director at Milner Media Partners in Bourbonnais, which is home to The Valley 92.7 FM, River Country 101.7 FM, 103.7 FM, and 96.1 FM, and WFAV 95.1 FM. However, long before his days at Milner, Rob built a name for himself working at WKAN reporting local news for several years. It was there they he learned from legendary Kankakee newsman, Ed Munday. Rob has seen a thing or two in his many years of radio broadcasting. This episode of Kankakee Podcast only covers a fraction of those stories. It’s an honor to be able to call Rob a co-worker and friend. 


You can hear Rob West weekday mornings on any of the Milner Media stations. I specifically suggest listening to Mike Tomano’s Morning Show on The Valley 92.7 FM weekday mornings from 5:00am to 10am. The interactions between Mike and Rob on the show are always entertaining! 


Much Love,
