One of the great advantages of having experience is that you’ve seen a lot. I started going to air shows many years ago – when
the Blue Angels were flying the F9F-8 Cougarand the Thunderbirds flew the F84G Thunderjet.
They’ve been through a few planes and I’ve added some experience as well.
Denver, Colorado, was a great place for air shows, with Buckley Naval Air Station and Lowry Air Force Base right there in town. In fact, living on the flight path at Lowry I used to get an air show everyday. I saw some great ones -B-29s, F-86s and a whole lot more that are vague memories.
I also grew up in the day when you could go to airports and stand on the roof of the terminal and watch passengers walk out and climb the stairs to get in the plane.
It is these memories that have fueled my interest in aviation and especially military aviation and air shows.
With that background, announcing air shows is a natural. I am looking forward to the start of the season and would love to do you show. Just contact me, up there, and let me know when and where you would like me to be.
Looking forward to Las Vegas
The ICAS convention is a chance to network!
The floor layout is different this year but the exicitement will still be there.
The International Council of Air Shows Convention will be held at Paris Las Vegas again this year. This is the gathering where air show professionals meet and learn about safety, sponsorships, the business of air shows and much more.
We also have a lot of fun and meet some really interesting people.
Come by booth 624 and talk to Announcer Bob about your airshow.
It's International Council of Airshows time and The graphic designer for Announcer Bob, Doug Haug, has come up with a fun new design for our display.
Announcer Bob is now
Voices of the Sky
Rosanne Gain has joined Bob Stovall on the announcer stand to bring a new dimension to air show announcing.
With the addition of Rosanne, Team Announcer Bob is now Voices of the Sky. Rosanne brings years of broadcasting experience to the team. For many years, Rosanne has been active behind the scenes helping organize and promote air shows.
Rosanne's strong female voice adds variety to the sound. Her creativity and her ability to see the excitement of an air show from the spectator’s viewpoint enables her to provide a unique look at people’s ongoing fascination with machines that fly and those who fly them.
Team Announcer Bob will continue to offer public relations and media services to air shows in addition to the announcing.
