Rob tells a story like few others in our business; in fact, a lot of us here at FOX 9 think he should write a book someday.

Rob reports weekdays for FOX 9 News; and he’s never seen a State Fair or Minnesota Wild story that he didn’t like.

Oh, and that meant he crossed the International Date Line and had two Tuesdays. At least it wasn’t two Mondays.
