Rob Wood

Morning News Producer, Host

Year started with KUOW: 2011

On most days, Rob heads to KUOW in the wee small hours to begin writing, editing and producing for our morning news magazine.  You’ll also hear him hosting from time to time.

Rob arrived at KUOW after several years of producing at NPR and public radio programs, including Marketplace, Weekend America and The Savvy Traveler.

Before graduating from the University of North Texas with his music degree, Rob volunteered at the school’s radio station, learning everything from cutting tape to hosting news and music programs. His experience there led to his first professional reporting job at an all-news station in Dallas.

Since then, Rob’s also reported, produced and anchored at other stations in Dallas and Los Angeles, and has done freelance work for a number of news organizations.

Before Friday’s big Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at Westlake Center, you might want to check out another tree lighting a few blocks away on Fourth Avenue.

For 25 years, Eric Greenberg of Seattle has volunteered to decorate that 100-foot tall Sequoia in front of Macy's and tonight, he'll flip the switch on the big tree for the last time. He told KUOW's Kim Malcolm when he first moved to Seattle from Woodstock, New York, he'd gaze at the tree from Oliver's Bar, across the street.
