What Happened to Bob And Sheri? The pair have been a mainstay on the airwaves for almost three decades, but fans have noticed radio silence when trying to tune in of late. Here’s what happened.

About The Bob and Sheri Show

Bob and Sheri is a syndicated US radio program hosted by Bob Lacey and Sheri Lynch.

Its flagship radio station for 29 years was WLNK 107.9, The Link, in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The show is owned by NOW! and airs on around 70 affiliate airwaves around the US, according to Radio Ink.

The pair have hosted mornings at WLNK since 2 February 1992.

Lacey and Lynch formed Now! Media in 2017 to self-syndicate their show, in a partnership with Tony Garcia.

What happened to Bob and Sheri?

Just shy of their 30th anniversary with WLNK in Charlotte, Radio One is “taking the station in a different direction,” which means Bob and Sheri’s show has been dropped.

The cancellation of the show follows the purchase of WLNK by Radio One in November 2020.

Sheri Lynch said of the decision: “We are actively looking for a new radio home in Charlotte. We love our listeners across America and around the world.

“Charlotte is home and will always be special.”

The host added that fans can continue to listen to the duo via their daily podcast, their off-air Oddcast, as well as the pair’s stream 24/7 at bobandsheri.com.

Tony Garcia said: “Charlotte is home for Bob & Sheri and WLNK was the springboard for their amazing success story.
