Official Statement about the Re-Investigation of Bob Crane's Murder (11/23/16)
"We—my coauthors and I, members of Bob Crane's family, his friends, and his colleagues—are always hopeful that one day, the true identity of Bob's murderer will be known and justice can be served. However, this recent investigation did not reveal any groundbreaking information or provide a resolution, and the subsequent media coverage did nothing more than bring unnecessary heartache to many who knew, loved, and cared about Bob. We do not discuss or endorse any speculative theories as to who may have committed the crime. We encourage those who want to know more about Bob Crane to discover his complete and true life story in Bob Crane: The Definitive Biography. All author profits are being donated to various charities in Bob's memory."

So Long 2011, Hello 2012! Best New Year's Wishes from Vote For Bob Crane

Well, Santa and his reindeer are back at the North Pole (with apparently a little help from Bob Crane here!), and the holiday season is coming to a close. It's been a little while since we've posted, but we've had good reason. It's been pretty hectic around here! For the past several weeks, in addition to celebrating the holidays with our families and friends, we've been busy at work planning for a whole avalanche of activity that will kick off in January 2012.

In mid-January, we'll be sending out a press release to the media announcing Bob Crane's nomination for induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame. Remember, you can support his induction in many ways, such as following us on Twitter, Liking us on Facebook, and sharing our posts and Tweets with your friends. You can also nominate Bob yourself by sending a letter directly to the National Radio Hall of Fame Steering Committee (click here for more details). Deadline for nominations is March 1st. And don't forget, the official ballot of Hall of Fame candidates will be released by the Museum of Broadcast Communications in either July or August for public voting, so stay tuned for details on how to vote. Anyone can vote, so we're counting on YOU to help see that Bob's extensive work in radio is recognized.

We are also in the process of building a new Web site (currently under construction) that will be launched in January. As soon as it's up, you'll be the first to know! 

The new year will also see some new information and interview clips with Bob and some famous folks. As Bob would say, we won't tell you who yet so we get you to listen to the whole show.

As we usher out 2011 and welcome in a brand new year, we want to thank you for all your support. We hope that 2012 will see Bob Crane's induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame, and with your help, we can make that happen!

Best wishes for a bright and shiny, happy and healthy New Year!
