Rob Decker

Hometown: Avon Lake, Ohio 

Education: Bachelors of Science in Broadcast News from Kent State University 

Career Path: I started as a news Intern at WFMJ in January 2008. After finishing my internship, I applied and was hired as a sports reporter and anchor in May 2008.

Interest and Hobbies: Love to snow ski, play baseball and spend as much time as I can at Progressive Field.  

Why did you choose to get into broadcast journalism?  My parents always told me I was great at two things; talking and sports trivia. Logically, after high school, I decided to put the two together and make a career out of it.  

What's your favorite sport? Baseball 

What's your favorite part of your job? I love covering the games. Doesn't matter if its the Indians, Browns, Ohio State, Youngstown State or the local high schools. I always enjoy being around the game, interacting with the teams and seeing them perform.
