R.I.P. Robert Pierpoint

I always loved this image of Bob. And he was always Bob when he signed off after doing a stand-up. Never “Robert”.

The real story is that Bob was an avid tennis buff and was scheduled to play when he was, with no notice, called upon to do a report. Thus, no disrespect was intended. Just Bob being expedient.

Bob’s generation of peers were broadcast legends. We’ll not see their like any time soon.
