Rob Linton joined the Jazz90.1 family in November of 2004 as Station Manager. Since then, his goal has been to keep this great radio station alive and well, broadcasting great jazz, blues and specialty programs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Rob came to Jazz90.1 from 1180 WHAM in Rochester, New York where he served as News Anchor, Producer and Public Service Director. He began with WHAM when he was just 18 years old, and a freshman in college. His work at iHeartMedia (owner of 1180 WHAM and 6 other local radio stations) also included the role of Promotions Coordinator for 106.7 KISS FM, 100.5 The Drive, Sunny 102.3, 95.1 The Brew, Sports Radio 1280 AM and 107.3 FM.
Before coming to WHAM, Rob worked briefly at WWWG 1460AM as a producer and DJ while still in high school.
Over the years, Rob has reported on events such as the September 11th terrorist attacks, numerous elections, ice storms, and many other local events. His voice has also been heard on 106.7 KISS FM, 95.1 The Fox, Sports Radio 1280 AM and 107.3 FM, 100.5 The Drive, Sunny 102.3 and WXXI-AM 1370.
