COUNTRY TOP 40
Every time he gets in front of the microphone, Bob Kingsley adds to his status as the most listened-to radio voice in country music history. The Host and Executive Producer of Bob Kingsley’s Country Top 40, far and away the most successful show of its kind, has been the king of the country countdown for three decades now, and to hear him tell it, the process retains every bit of its magic.
“I love the music and the people who make it,” he says, “and I want our listeners to have as much insight into both as it’s possible to give them, and to make the experience as enjoyable as possible.”
Bob’s love for the genre, its people and its history has always been evident in that warm, rich voice, and the combination has given him both a vast, loyal audience and legendary status within the industry. He has twice been named the CMA’s National Broadcast Personality of the Year and his show received Billboard’s Network/Syndicated Program of the Year award no fewer than 16 times. Bob also received the ACM’s National Broadcast Personality of the Year Award in 2007 and has been voted National Air Personality of the Year for the three past years by Country Radio Broadcasters and Country Aircheck. He was chosen as the recipient of the 2012 President’s Award by the CRB and, perhaps most tellingly, he was inducted in 1998 into the Country Music DJ Hall of Fame.
