Remembering Bob Wallace

Bob Sirott

Bob Sirott took some time to share memories of his former co-worker, Bob Wallace, who died last week after contracting COVID-19. He was 80. Wallace worked at CBS 2 from 1970 to 1991, anchoring the midday “Noonbreak” with Lee Phillip and weekend newscasts. Sirott spoke about why Wallace was so well liked, and the last time he crossed paths with one of the Channel 2 mainstays.
