51 year vet retires


Active member
Bob "Scoop" Phillips retired last week after 51 years at WDTN in Dayton.
It was kind of odd to work for him. He was the chief, but never at the the station. He camped out at City Hall and got the perp walks and listened to the scanners. Most videographers only interaction with him after their first meeting constisted of, "hey swing by City Hall on your way back and pick up Scoop's tapes." In fact his only real comment to me after hearing of my hire and reading my resume was, "are you telling me you didn't have the good sense to stay away from news?"
His career speaks for itself.
