In 2013 Rob was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Always the consummate professional, he decided he wanted to leave the K-97 airwaves at the top of his game. Rob stated, “I’m still able to do the job, but I don’t want to hold on until I can’t do it anymore.”
While Rob may be retiring from radio, he is certainly not “retiring” in general. He is busier than ever taking care of his health, and wants to find opportunities to help others suffering from Parkinson’s.
Rob Berg’s last show on K-97 will be Friday, September 28th from 2pm-6pm. As Rob said, “30 years with K-97 seemed like a nice round number to call it a career”.
