Bob Carter

Bob started out in radio in Port Angeles in 1984. He was both News Director and Morning Voice at KONP. He moved to Bellingham in 1986, taking a job as Assistant News Director and afternoon announcer on KPUG. Not too long after, he moved to the mornings and played “Solid Gold Hits” for several years. He joined the KGMI team in 1999, and has been our overnight News voice since then. He can also be heard on our sister station KISM, Saturdays, from 10-to-noon as “BC in the AM”.

When he’s not trying to catch up on much-needed sleep Bob can usually be found thumbing through a collection of pulps from the 1930’s and 40’s (“The Shadow”, “Doc Savage”, “Amazing Stories”) or listening to old radio shows like “Suspense” and “The Mysterious Traveler”!

Bob and his wife Karen share a happy home with two very healthy (heavy) beagles!
