ABOUT BOB KINGSLEY
One of broadcasting’s most beloved and iconic figures, Bob Kingsley’s legendary voice was a mainstay on radio for 60 years. His dominance in the Country format began in 1978. As he assumed the host role of American Country Countdown with Bob Kingsley, after four years as the show’s producer, Kingsley & Tom Rounds (owner of Watermark) re-launched the program. In 2006, he and his wife and business partner Nan Kingsley launched Bob Kingsley’s Country Top 40, produced by their own KCCS Productions.
Following Bob’s passing in 2019, Bob Kingsley’s CT40 with Fitz began running on more than 300 stations, produced by North Star Audio & Hubbard Radio Group, with syndication via Skyview Networks.
Beginning January 2, 2021, Bob Kingsley’s voice will once again be heard, this time on the airwaves of WSM Radio/Nashville, 650-AM. Each week, a classic episode of Bob’s countdown will air Saturdays between 10am CT-2pm CT.
