I began my radio career by winning a contest at age 12 on my hometown country radio station. The connection led to a radio show, where I was required to obtain a child actor's permit to legally work underage. I have worked at several small radio stations in upstate New York, leading to WGNA-FM. In 2000, I received my first national CMA nomination for Medium Market Radio Personality of the Year. In 2006, I took the crystal trophy home and was once again nominated in 2010
Check out the top 40 for this week after listening to the countdown on Sunday morning!
Every time he gets in front of the microphone, Bob Kingsley adds to his status as the most listened-to radio voice in country music history. The Host and Executive Producer of Bob Kingsley’s Country Top 40, far and away the most successful show of its kind, has been the king of the country countdown for three decades now, and to hear him tell it, the process retains every bit of its magic.

I have always lived and worked in the Capital Region. I've been in radio since 1973, and have been with WGNA for over 21 years, and it's still a pleasure to work with some of the greatest people in the world. I live in the Colonie area with my wife, Linda. Maybe I dj'd or entertained at your wedding or party through the years. My favorite foods are barbecue, chicken, Italian, and seafood, just to name a few. My hobbies include electronics, computers and playing the drums when I get the chance

Somewhere in the Robinson family archives, there’s video of young Jeremy at a cousin’s birthday party. While all the other children are playing, Jeremy is using a stick as a microphone and interviewing party guests. By 9, Robinson was “hosting” a radio and television version of 'The Jeremy Robinson Show' out of his bedroom using a karaoke machine and his family's video camera. Now, it's not only a passion, it's a career -- and it's not just the listeners that are taking notice -- it's the country stars, too! Kix Brooks says, "Jeremy Robinson is one of the most exciting young talents on the air right now, and he’s as much a fan of country music and our artists as I am
I've been doing this radio thing since 1998. I've been lucky enough to do Classic Rock, Active Rock and Sports, before my friend Sean asked me to come be a part of the best show on the best station in the Albany area. I'm a huge sports fan. I love the Knicks but my heart belongs to the Yankees and the Raiders. I hate the Red Sox and the Broncos, Chargers and Chiefs. The thing I'm most proud of in this world is my little girl. She is all that is good in me and better than all my faults
