Bob Moffitt

Sacramento Region Reporter

Bob is an award-winning journalist who has been telling stories for as long as he can remember. 

He grew up watching California politics.  His father was a county supervisor.

He gained an affinity for the arts from his mother -a concert pianist and then an accomplished painter.  

Bob has always had a knack for getting to the truth of the matter and has made a name for himself with his coverage of the Sacramento Kings, flood protection, and life in the Sacramento region.  He is also known for his dry humor and ability to find the element in a story that others overlook. 

Bob is an avid sports fan who has written numerous articles for local and regional papers, while also working as a baseball, football, volleyball, basketball, and boxing announcer.

He met his future bride while they were both in Ms. Duncan's sixth grade class.  Twenty years later, they were married.  Bob and Joan have two daughters and a son.
