Rob Collins is a weekend warrior. Turn on FOX4 News Saturday and Sunday and he’ll be there, usually sporting cowboys boots. Rob’s a proud native Texan and says he’s thrilled to be a part of what he calls “Kansas City’s most dysfunctional lovable morning show family.”
Collins comes to K.C. from Champaign, IL where he spent 10 years as a Sports Anchor/Reporter and 6 years as a Morning News Anchor. Rob says he left some boot prints in Rockford, IL and Sherman, TX along the way.
Rob’s worked the Super Bowl, The NCAA Basketball Championship, Several Indy 500’s, a couple of Rose Bowls, and a cache of chili cook-offs. Collins has even traveled to Sweden and Mexico City for stories and of course souvenirs. Rob is a thrill seeker and actually jumped out of a perfectly good airplane for a feature story.
Rob’s the recipient of several awards. He says they’re in his desk along with a host of hot sauce bottles, a pack of protein bars, and several sleeves of gum.
Rob loves sports, bacon, BBQ, anything grilled, chips and salsa, ice cold beverages, country music, dogs, cowboy boots, and his wife and two kids…. but he contends the order depends on the day.
