About the Event

The world of sports broadcast is one where we often forget about its audio engineering needs. This segment of the audio industry is one of the most mysterious niches to explore.

In this April Meeting Event of 2022 we will feature some of the leading Canadian audio engineers in sports broadcasting.

Topics will range from Olympic experiences, specific technical and social skills requirements of the trade, as well as microphones and mixing techniques for sports.

Bob started his audio journey before his teens, rescuing speakers from old TV’s and stereos curbside on bulk garbage days. Forty-plus years later, he’s still tinkering with the sound equipment but has traded his wagon for television mobiles! His career has included stops in corporate photography, multi-image slideshows, motion picture sound editing, and a handful of years in management.

With more than thirty-five years experience in live broadcasting and well over 1,000,000 miles riding airplanes, there’s not much he hasn’t seen or done in the world of live sports TV.
