PULLMAN, Wash. — Legendary Washington State University announcer Bob Robertson passed away Monday, at the age of 92.

Robertson’s family confirmed his passing to WSU Associate Director of Athletics Bill Stevens.

Robertson was a hall of fame broadcaster for the Cougars for 52 years before he retired in 2018. He served as the play-by-play voice from 1964-2011, and moved to the analyst chair for his last seven years on the mic.

  1. It should not be forgotten that Bob had an extensive career doing minor league baseball. He latterly was the radio voice of the Spokane Indians, and earlier had broadcast for several different Tacoma PCL clubs, including the Tacoma Tigers. There seems to be plenty of evidence that Bob Robertson may have been the last to ‘reconstruct’ out-of-town baseball games from bare bones reports relayed by telephone from the ballpark.
    And in researching his history I learned that Bob had aired some Notre Dame football on radio and TV in the 1950’s. Quite a guy, and one hell of a career. RIP old friend.
