In 1980, Bob Beers quit UNR’s school of journalism to become the news director for KCBN and KRNO radio in Reno, where he already worked as a disc jockey. At the time, he was the youngest radio news director in the history of the state.

While Sarah finished her sociology degree at UNR, Bob practiced making current events interesting for radio listeners, and when Sarah graduated, the two moved back to Las Vegas where employment opportunities were better, plus their parents invited them to at-least weekly steak dinners, with baked potato.

Beers went to work at KLUC and KMJJ radio, where, in 1982, he won “Best Miniseries” and “Best Newscast” awards from the Associated Press in the AP’s Medium Market California-Nevada-Hawaii division.

The first segment (of twenty) of Bob Beers’ AP award-winning miniseries “The Future of Las Vegas” can be heard here.
