Registration open for “Bringing Fun to Work” with Channel 12’s Bob Herzog


IABC of Greater Cincinnati kicks off its program year this fall with a light-hearted look at what we all do for a living: communicate.

Bob Herzog, a member of Local 12‘s “Good Morning Cincinnati” team, has endeared himself to area news-watchers with his sense of fun and his community involvement. Bob has a story to tell about how to connect with people – and how to bring fun to work. Join us on Thursday, September 20, 2018 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM for this lunch event at Interact for Health.

Bob will talk about his career and what spurs his imagination to deliver creative content his audience appreciates. In particular, we’ll hear how Bob’s creativity spurred social media notoriety with Dance Party Fridays, “Just Don’t Go” and “Bob’s Makeup Tutorial.” And much more!

Bob joined the Local 12 team at the end of 2005. He anchors “Good Morning Cincinnati” with John Lomax and Sheila Gray. A Cincinnati guy, and more specifically, a proud West Side guy, Bob takes special pride in getting involved in community events. Bob is always inspired to see neighbors helping neighbors and friends helping friends.

He graduated from Oak Hills High School and Xavier University. Bob also obtained a law degree from Chase College of Law at Northern Kentucky University.

It’s no surprise Bob loves all kinds of music and movies. He has a passion for basketball, but his number one hobby is spending time with his wife and four children.

Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn how to bring more fun into your job. Cost is $25 for members and students, or $40 for non-members. Price includes lunch.
