Bob Matthews

Bob Matthews signs off of iHeartMedia news/talk WHAM Rochester (1180), ending a market career that spanned 35 years.

“I might as well get it over with,” Matthews told his audience on Friday, May 8, according to the Democrat & Chronicle. “I figure I've done approximately 8,200 shows over 35 years here on WHAM. It’s been a pleasure. Didn’t get fired. Didn’t get furloughed. I’ve got to admit the coronavirus got the best of me. It’s been very difficult the last two months. It’s been tough talking sports for two hours when there's no sports.”

Mathews 6-8pm timeslot will be filled by the syndicated “The Savage Nation.”
