Bob Kelly - Top o' the Morning and Mainly Music

Bob Kelly holds down weekday radio from 10:00 'til noon and from 2:00 'til 4:00 with "Top 'o the Morning" and "Mainly Music" respectively. With a style of informality and a wee bit o' Irish humor, Bob Kelly presents a truly listenable program of music... popular standards, carefully selected current releases, plus the familiar favorites of Broadway and Hollywood. His musical selections are as appropriate for the housewife at the ironing board as for the businessman in the office.

An important segment of both Kelly shows is, of course, the responsibility of keeping the Washington audience informed on events and people in the news. This responsibility is fulfilled with NBC Radio Network News on the Hour, Emphasis broadcasts, as well as WRC Local News on the half hour.

Bob Kelly became an established Washington personality during his four year employment at WTOP and WTOP TV prior to his joining WRC. While at WTOP he hosted his own radio programs and did a television sports commentary. A native Midwesterner, Bob has been associated with major stations, including WTMJ radio and television in Milwaukee and WBBM radio and television in Chicago. Network commercial announcing, emcee chores, news and sports broadcasting were his major activities with the Midwestern stations.

With a professional commercial delivery stemming from long experience in broadcasting and a natural ability at salesmanship, Bob Kelly is a solid investment for any sponsor.
