Rob Banks

The name's Banks. First off, I love Buffalo and hope I never leave -- ever. I went to Lancaster High School, then I studied marketing at the University at Buffalo and boogied out of there a little early. I interned here for marketing, and after I paid them all off (JK, JK), they decided to keep me, and I landed up on the radio. I love this job and everything about it -- except when I can't find the coffee to make when I have to work overnight. I believe in taking less, in always giving back and that the worst thing in life is being completely average.
