Over the next 10 years Bobby put his talents to work as program manager for CMT-Latin America, on-air personality at stations in Houston and in Kerrville, and as one of the first Texas voices hired by the Sirius Satellite Radio Network. From 2004 to 2007, he worked for San Antonio’s Y-100 as producer both for the morning show and for Voice Tracker 7-to-Midnight.
