About Rob Archer

z_k30ffxNews anchor, radio personality, musician, author, talk show host, radio programmer, format creator, writer of dark stories and poems. The opinions expressed are my own.

I got into the radio business while I was still in high school, and I was writing dark stories and poems before I got into radio… but I’ve had much more success in the broadcasting field than in the literary.

Currently, I’m a news anchor for KNX Los Angeles and am active in my union, SAG-AFTRA, sitting on several important national and local committees (and formerly a member of the Los Angeles Board). Before that, I was the midday news anchor on KFI during the Bill Carroll Show. From time to time KFI let me host a talk show. Previously I enjoyed many years at Dial Global (now WestwoodOne) as a program director and creator of new formats, having stirred a few waves not only in the syndicated radio biz but also in the online music streaming circus. Back in the day (God, is it already “the day”?) I was a DJ and Assistant Program Director at KBIG Los Angeles, including being the host of the immensely popular Disco Saturday Night. And before that, I was making radio waves in Miami and Orlando.

For fun, I love good movies, good books, and good television. And I love arguing about the definition of “good” when it comes to movies, books, and television.

In my spare time, I write and record music at home under the moniker Homeboy Veronica. You can check out my music here.

In my spare spare time, I write short stories and poetry. I have published some collections which you can see here.
