As the first host of National Public Radio’s flagship program, Morning Edition, Bob was one of the most listened-to people on radio between 1979 and 2004. In 1999, the show won a George Foster Peabody Award and Bob was praised as “a man who embodies the essence of excellence in radio.” He later became one of the first popular radio personalities to make a successful transition to satellite radio with The Bob Edwards Show on Sirius XM Radio. That program has received countless awards and accolades from groups such as ASCAP, the National Press Club, the Radio-Television News Directors Association and the Society of Professional Journals. Bob is a Louisville native and graduate of St. Xavier High School and the University of Louisville. He holds numerous honorary degrees from the University of Louisville, Spalding University and Bellarmine University – just to name a few. For more information about Bob, click here.
