Mini-Biography:

Bobby Lane was born a Hoosier in 1967 and moved to the Peach State Capitol of Atlanta in 1974, eventually graduating from the University of Georgia, thus starting his radio career at WGMG Magic 102 in Athens in 1990 as an overnight jock and morning show sports reporter.  From there he worked at stations in Nearby Gainesville & Macon, as well as Atlanta's Oldies FOX 97 before coming to work under Keith Abrams at Charlotte's magic 96.1 WWMG as the night jock in 1996.  Bobby eventually became assistant PD/MD and in 2001 became the midday DJ through the Spring of 2003.  Bobby became the morning drive personality for Beasley Broadcasting WMGV V-103.3 FM in New Bern, NC in January of 2006.  After leaving Magic 96.1, he landed with Oldies 96.5 FM WFLB in Fayetteville NC which went to an automated Classic Rock format.

Editor's Note:

Bobby Lane was a young creative force at Magic 96.1 who came initially to do the night show and eventually wound up as assistant program director/music director and mid day jock.  He left Magic 96.1 to take the PD job at Cool 104.3 in Montgomery AL, but when it finally came down to leaving the Carolinas he just couldn't do it.  So he quit the Montgomery job before even moving down there and instead landed at Oldies 96.5 WFLB in Fayetteville NC where he is now the morning drive star!  Bobby puts lots of planning into the content on his show.  He had many special features on his night show at Magic 96.1 like "Elvis at Eleven" which gave lots of people reasons to listen to Magic 96.1.  At one time Bobby was number one in Charlotte nighttime adult listeners, beating even the dominant country stations.
