A Floridian since the ‘50s, Bob Ross is a graduate of Ocala High School and Eckerd College, where he wrote for the campus paper and discovered the joy of inflicting his opinions on others. After working as a proofreader, rock music critic and bureau reporter — and a stint managing Tampa’s first video rental store — Bob joined the Tampa Tribune as film critic in 1985. The job lasted 22 years, until it vanished along with much of the daily newspaper industry. Since retiring in 2008, Bob has remained active as a reviewer and contributor on WMNF radio and WTVT-TV Fox 13 in Tampa. A founding member of the Florida Film Critics Circle, Bob is known for his vast trivia knowledge and terrible puns.
