Your 2 Cents: Viewers Share Memories Of Bob Barry Sr.

Posted: Updated:

Kelly Ogle, News 9

I shared some of my thoughts on the passing of Bob Barry last night, tonight some of yours.

Kerry writes: "Whether on TV, or in public, you always saw Bob with his 'Bob Barry' smile."

From John Ferguson: "I echo everything you said about, Bob Barry. I was lucky (blessed) not only to work with, Bob, but also, Jack Ogle."

Barbara from Edmond says: "Thank you so very, very much for including a photo of your Dad with Bob in this evening's news spot. Ever since I heard that we'd lost Bob, I'd been wanting to see a photo of them together."

Claud says: "My earliest memories of OU football are listening to Bob Barry on the radio with my Dad.

Even when we were on TV he would turn down the volume and listen to Bob."

Brad from Tecumseh: "Kelly I can honestly say that Bob Barry was not one of the best but was the best on the radio calling the plays."

And finally from Keith Swezey, a long time WKY News Anchor: "I'd been on the job about two weeks when I went to the sports guys looking for something. Imagine my surprise when Bob greeted me with 'What's up Bubba, what can I do for you.' He knew my name, complimented me on a story I had done, and I was just a lowly, late-night radio anchor and new on the job to boot."
