Who is Jon Robinson?

Jon Robinson was a longtime radio and television personality in Charlotte, North Carolina. He was also the public address announcer for the NFL's Carolina Panthers from the team's inception in 1995 until midway through the 2009 season. He also called the first seven editions of the Meineke Car Care Bowl.

A native of nearby Gastonia, Robinson graduated from the University of Maryland in 1983 and worked at several Charlotte radio stations before landing the morning drive-time slot at WBT in 1992. In 1997, he moved to then-sister television station WBTV as an anchor and reporter. After being passed over for a promotion, he moved to WCBD-TV in Charleston, South Carolina as the main evening anchor. He commuted to Charlotte for the next two years for Panthers games.

In 2006, he moved back to Charlotte as morning host at WDYT, a station in nearby Kings Mountain that had recently boosted its daytime power to cover Charlotte. Almost two years into this job, he was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma in his throat. Doctors managed to catch it before it spread, however. Having been laid off from WDYT, he then moved to WKQC as morning host in December 2008.
