WXXI Great Bob Smith Passes


Longtime WXXI radio talk show host Bob Smith died Friday at the age of 63. For 25 years, Smith hosted the two-hour 1370 Connection show for over 25 years on the Rochester, New York station. He had a stroke in 2013, which caused him to retire from WXXI.

Vice President of WXXI Radio Jeanne Fisher told WHAM-TV, “It’s a real loss for the community, because it was a voice that really needed to continue, that needed to prompt other voices to speak – and I hope that we can do him justice by keeping that conversation going here at WXXI.”
