Bob Timms spent more than three decades in the newsroom at Action News, the local news program of the ABC affiliate, WPVI-TV, in Philadelphia. Before that he had a long and productive career in radio and TV news in the Philadelphia South Jersey Market, including positions at KYW-TV, and WIP and WPEN radio.
For five years he was news director for the Camden city-owned radio station, WCAM, from 1975 to 1980. He and podcast host Steve Lubetkin traded news audio over a phone patch from Camden to Asbury Park, where Steve was doing news for WJLK radio, and back again.
Bob joined Steve in the Lubetkin Media Companies studio for a great conversation about his career in broadcast news -- and the changes he's seen over the decades in how the news is made and reported.
