Doctor Bob Lee is one of the most recognizable personalities in the media capitol of the world, New York City, and has been a mainstay at WBLS Radio since 1980.
Lee harkens back to the "hey-days" of radio prior to the internet's arrival, when people knew the voice first before the face. He had the distinction of being an integral part of the community affairs department for WBLS where getting out to the many entertainment and charity events as the station's "good-will" ambassador meant that many listeners also knew his face even more so than other radio personalities, because of his constant presence.
This is something that Bob knew early on in his career, that he wanted to be a part of a station that had a real sense of community and care for those who regularly tuned into the station. And It was something about being able to "give back" through the many charitable events the station gave or participated with, that fueled Lee's passion for radio beyond the love of music.
Today, some 40 years later, that is what still fuels his passion as Bob Lee's name and stature has allowed him to be the media personality at large with his continued work at WBLS, his own cable talk show, hosting or being the M.C. at various expos such as Circle of Sisters, at Harlem Week, and at the Apollo Theater, as well as a range of other media outlets from acting in small roles in movies, television, commercials, and as an author of several non-fiction books.
