Bob McIntyre was born and raised in Iroquois Falls.

He has worked on-air and behind the scenes in radio and TV in North Bay, Sault Ste. Marie, Timmins, Toronto and Ottawa since the early 1980s.

The desire to “come home” brought Bob back to Timmins last year, and eventually to Moose FM, where he is now News Director for our radio stations and their websites in Timmins, Cochrane, Iroquois Falls, Kapuskasing and Hearst.

Bob’s nose for local news and how to reflect it back to our audience make him the news leader in all of our markets.
