The purpose of this blog is to act as a forum for fans of Rob Schilling to voice their desire for WINA to put him back on the air, as half of the "Morning Team."

Over the past year, Rob has done an excellent job as part of the "morning team." Although he started as a guest host, he was soon promoted to be the co-host of the WINA Morning Show, along with Jane Foy.

The Charlottesville-Albemarle community has benefited enormously from Rob's positive, fair, and insightful voice, his deep knowledge of local politics from his years on the City Council, and his inquisitive interviews. (To learn about Rob's fascinating background, see "About Rob," below)

But on September 4, without any pre-announcement and for the rest of the week, the Morning Show had a new co-host sit in with Jane Foy. We understand that WINA is a private business, and as such, can make whatever personnel decisions it wants.

The fact is, however, that the station only earns money as a result of advertising --- which is based on listenership.

Those of us who have looked forward each morning to hearing Rob & Jane discuss national & local issues, in their inimitable style, and with the lighthearted yet often serious nature of their interchange, miss it very much. Although there currently is no (private) alternative to WINA for local news & talk radio, there are innumerable TV, Internet and print vehicles with which to obtain local news & information.

So, if enough people decide to utilize these vehicles, WINA will definitely feel the impact --- and will hopefully bring Rob back!!!

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED: Please let WINA know how you feel about its decision to replace Rob!!! Here's WINA's contact info:

Renee Quesenberry, General Manager:
Rick Daniels, WINA Program Director:
WINA business phone: 220-2300
WINA fax: 220-2304
Remember, however you choose to make your voice known, please remember to be courteous, concise and on-target --- those are the messages that WINA will pay attention to.

Please also consider leaving a comment on this blog (click on "Comment" at the bottom of this page). Although anonymous comments are welcome, the most helpful ones will be those that include the writer's name (think of Letters-To-The-Editor). We will periodically be forwarding these comments on to WINA's management.

Let's work together to help convince WINA to bring back Rob ---- soon!!!


About Rob

A native of southern Califironia, Rob relocated to Charlottesville in 1998 to enjoy what he describes as the idyllic lifestyle of our area. In addition to being an accomplished musican and singer-songwriter, Rob is also a savvy businessman.

In 2002, Rob was elected to the City Council as its lone Republican. A staunch defender of freedom, property rights and responsible, accountable government, Rob tirelessly fought for intelligent financial management and transparency in all City affairs.

In 2006, Rob fought for a controversial elected school board referendum, against seemingly overwhelming opposition, from entrenched political interests. In the end, with Rob's leadership, the measure passed by a significant margin, and local parents have been grateful.

Along with his wife Joan, and their son, Gabriel, Rob has made a distinctive and positive contribution to life in Charlottesville and Albemarle County.

Rob was/is good for this community. Let's keep up the pressure to bring him back on the air.

Rob is definitely missed...

WINA, if you are in business to serve your listeners' interests, then start listening to them... BRING ROB BACK!!!

Nothing personal against the new guy, but the entire dynamic of the Morning Show changed, and not for the better.

Are you listening, WINA?

rackingguy said...

Rob definitely brought an insightful view to the commentary team and provided common sense outlooks on local events. Rob is a very classy person, and the WINA team is much weaker for his absence.

Blair said...

Bring back Rob. I stopped listening because new host sounds like DJ on 3WV on morning news skit where he would read a sound bite and the DJs would proclaim in unison "LOSER!!" or "LOSERS!!"

In this case WINA is the LOSER! And the city has lost an important perspective-- the truth about city issues.

It was refreshing to hear someone who was well informed about the Charlottesville community. The new morning hosts are pleasant enough, but not very well informed. I hope WINA will bring Rob back.

Virginia said...

What a loss for the community! Rob was the best informed of any commentator on the air locally. Can't believe he is gone.

I hope that Rob will return to the airwaves soon. I really do miss him from the Morning Show on WINA. He appears to have a unique ability to work in radio. I understand WINA has a business to run, but from a listener’s standpoint, I have to admit it was better with him as a morning co-host than the current line up, and I do not mean any disrespect to the current line up. I was a much happier listener before the change.

Rob IS coming back. Looks like all the efforts of disgruntled listeners paid off!

Be listening for the Schilling Show, beginning January 7, 2008 at 1:00 PM on WINA.

The efforts of the community were successful, but not without media whinging.

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin
stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so
she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has
83 views. I know this is totally off topic but
I had to share it with someone!
