K) Bob Wojnowski

Bob “Wojo” Wojnowski has covered sports in Detroit since before the Internet was invented (but long after the telegraph was invented).

Wojo has written for the Detroit News since 1989, and has covered pretty much every major sporting event in the U.S. — seven Olympics, numerous Super Bowls and Final Fours, the World Series, four Red Wings Stanley Cup championships, three Pistons championships and a healthy dose of bowl games.

For 14 years, Wojo was the chubbier half of the “Stoney and Wojo” afternoon radio show on WDFN. He also can be seen on Fox 2 Sundays before Lions game, Sunday nights at the roundtable, and in frequent “accidental” walk-bys behind unsuspecting anchors.

Wojo lives in Farmington Hills, about a mile from a Tim Horton’s. He tries to inform, enlighten and entertain, not necessarily in that order. He considers humor essential to healthy living, along with buffalo wings.

He has lived in Michigan most of his life, except for the first four years (born in Buffalo, N.Y.) and six years in Florida as an aspiring journalist.

Yes, he leaves his Christmas tree up year-round. Don’t ask.
