Bob Bonner



I grew up in:  Dover Township in Racine County.  Spent my early days on a dairy farm.  Our nearest neighbors were miles away, so I think that's where I developed my imagination.  We had to make our own fun.

First radio job: WIZM La Crosse.  I met the General Manager in a bar on 3rd Street.  I said I wanted to be a DJ.  He told me he needed a news guy.  Done.

Magic 98 Morning Show debut: 1989.  Wait, 1989?  OMG that's right!

What motivated me to get into radio:  Hunger.

Favorite vacation experience: Getting up close and personal with a 12' nurse shark while scuba diving with my wife Terri off the Jamaican coast.  I never felt so vulnerable and alive...mon.

On weekends I like to spend:  Lazy Saturday mornings drinking coffee with my best pal Terri.

If I could have anything I wanted I'd get:  A six-burner Viking cook top and double oven.  I love to cook, so for me, that would be nirvana.

My latest obsession:  My dog Ziggy, and the "girls"...my 15 chickens. 

My best Magic experience:  There have literally been thousands.  Every time I meet a cool Magic fan.  I've met many over the years.  You know who you are.
