On Communications: Veteran TV/Radio Newsman Bob Timms

Veteran news assignment editor Bob Timms in the Lubetkin Media Companies studio

Bob Timms spent more than three decades in the newsroom at Action News, the local news program of the ABC affiliate, WPVI-TV, in Philadelphia. Before that he had a long and productive career in radio and TV news in the Philadelphia South Jersey Market, including positions at KYW-TV, and WIP and WPEN radio.

For five years – and this is when I first met Bob – he was news director for the Camden city-owned radio station, WCAM, from 1975 to 1980. We traded news audio over a phone patch from Camden to Asbury Park, where I was doing news for WJLK radio, and back again.

Bob joined me in the studio for a great conversation about his career in broadcast news — and the changes he’s seen over the decades in how the news is made and reported.
