With a heavy heart...Rest In Peace Bob
Radio’s Super Agent Bob Eatman Passes Away
In news that’s reverberating around the radio world, Super Agent Bob Eatman has passed away.
Robert Eatman, or “Bob” as he was known to his many broadcasting clients was the founder of Robert Eatman Enterprises, which specialized in handling some the top radio talent in the country. The list of Bob Eatman’s clients included at one time or another a who’s who of radio with names like Opie and Anthony, Ron & Fez, Don Geronimo, Jim Norton, Dr. Drew, Nick Cannon, Rover, The Sports Junkies, The Regular Guys, Luis Jiménez, Kidd Chris, Ross Brittain, Kidd Kraddick, Bert Weiss, Ralph Garman, Clark Howard, Bean of Kevin & Bean and many more.
Most of these radio personalities from time to time would treat their listeners to behind-the-scenes stories about Bob, whether it was about his laid back cadence and style (which was a facade) or his intense persistence during negotiations. The Super Agent was rarely heard on the air, if ever, but he still became a part of these broadcasters’ on air worlds.
Bob Eatman, as noted in the tweet below by Jim Norton, graduated from college with a mastery of the French horn, plus music and business degrees. In his professional life, he sat the instrument down (although he never quit playing) and followed the business direction of his education and ended up on the other side of the mic by working out deals for broadcasters through their different unions. From there, Bob successfully went to work with Fox Broadcasting before creating his own talent empire with the help and dedication of his brother Ross, which became Robert Eatman Enterprises or R.E.E. as they were known.
Several of Bob Eatman’s clients put their feelings and condolences online through tweets which not only praised his skills as an expert agent and negotiator specializing in broadcasting, but also lauded his other qualities which they appreciated even more, including being a great friend and family man. Here’s what just a few of his clients had to say about the Super Agent Bob Eatman.
With a heavy heart I announce the passing of Super Agent Robert Eatman. For 20 yrs he guided me w/ honor in a business filled w/ dishonesty
— opie radio (@OpieRadio) 4:47 AM - Sep 26, 2017

June 2017 Announcement
iHeart declares KYSR L.A.-based Woody Fife a franchise player – he’s renewed for another five years in mornings at “Alt 98.7” KYSR. Also given a syndication deal via Premiere Networks. iHeart says “The Woody Show” is “raw, authentic and unapologetic.” They call it “recess/happy hour on the radio.” Jeff “Woody” Fife came to KYSR just three years ago, after working at St. Louis alternative “105.7 the Point” KPNT. Before that he and folks from the current “Woody Show” teamed at CBS-owned alternative “Live 105” KITS San Francisco – one of the Howard Stern replacement shows that clicked. Since last Fall, the Woody Show’s been simulcast back in St. Louis on iHeart’s “Alt 104.9” KLLT. (The October 19 NOW Newsletter story about the new St. Louis “Alt” was “iHeart causes more format heartburn for Emmis, this time in St. Louis.”) Reading the release, it’s Woody himself who has the five-year contract. He’s repped by agents Bob and Ross Eatman. We’ll see how extensively iHeart uses the Woody Show on its own stations – though syndicating an L.A.-based morning show to earlier time zones has limitations. The Woody Show airs 5am-10am Pacific time on KYSR.
