Career Achievement Inductee
Bob Todd began his radio career at WELL in Battle Creek Michigan in 1964. In 1966, he came to Atlanta’s WQXI to do the all night shift. When the new PD, '07 Career Achievement inductee Paul Drew, took himself off the air, he moved Todd into the afternoon drive slot. After a short stint at CKLW, he returned to WQXI as program and music director and resumed hosting afternoon drive. Todd remained at WQXI until 1969. While in Atlanta, Bob joined 2007 Georgia Radio Hall of Fame Legacy Inductee “Skinny” Bobby Harper as one of the dj’s on “NOW EXPLOSION” the nation’ s very first music television show on Atlanta’s Channel 36 (then Ted Turner’s Channel 17). Bob’s’ sidekick “Gorf” was nearly as popular as Todd. His radio career continued in Chattanooga, Louisville, Philadelphia, and other markets before he settled in Ocala Florida where he is President of Thurgaland Marketing and Consulting.
