HOUSTON, March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- For almost forty years, Bob Allen has been a trusted and reputable figure that Houston area residents have relied on for their sports news. He originally joined KTRK, or channel 13, in 1974, and over his many decades on air, he has become a veritable institution in the Houston television industry. Most local residents recognize him by name and sight, and they may also recognize his familiar voice. While he will be missed by many local residents who regularly tune into KTRK for their evening news, he plans to remain the public spotlight and has joined Pastorini-Bosby Talent as a speaker.
A Successful Career
For over 38 years, Bob Allen has been covering news stories for Houston area residents, and this includes high school, college and even pro spots. While he signed on with KTRK in 1974, he quickly rose to assume the role of sports director the following year. In addition to covering local sports coverage on TV, he also has been regularly involved with organizations like the Special Olympics and Sunshine Kids. In honor of his incredible legacy at the news station, he was honored with a brief segment on 610 AM, or KILT. In this radio segment, he sat down and spoke with radio personality Barry Warner, and he had special call-ins from CBS anchor Jim Nantz and former pro football player (and current NFL head football coach) Mike Munchak. The station also aired a highlight film of his career during his last evening on air. In addition, the studio invited some of his closest family, friends and professional colleagues into the studio for a fabulous send-off.
The Future for Bob Allen
Bob Allen's run as a sports anchor and director at KTRK-TV is unique due to its longevity, but Houston area residents haven't heard the last of him. He has plans to begin writing a book, entitled "…and Bob Allen" about his life in the media and the many people he has met in his life. In addition, he plans to open a media company that will be dedicated to producing documentaries on historical and modern sports stories. Bob Allen has also been signed to the speakers division at Pastorini-Bosby Talent.
Houston area residents can keep their eyes open for the book that Bob Allen is currently preparing to write, planned for release in May 2013, as well as the documentaries that he will be working on. Over the course of his time in the public spotlight as a newsman in Houston, he has watched sports evolve in the local area and has lived through many interesting, exciting and even world-changing events.
