About

“Doctor” Bob Lee is one of the most recognized entertainment personalities in New York. His career in radio, music and television spans 30 years. Lee began his career in 1979 after receiving his BA and MA in Communications from New York Institute of Technology, where he was a DJ for 88.7 WTNY Radio. Lee later advanced to Music Director, Program Director and eventually General Manager of WTNY Radio. In 1980, Lee joined WBLS for a one-year internship before moving on to KISS-FM for his start in commercial broadcasting. He thereafter returned to WBLS where he has had a rich and diverse career. From 1986 to 1994, Lee was a DJ on the weekend edition of WBLS’s renowned program "The Quiet Storm" and has for several years provided live reports on the morning show from various WBLS-sponsored community events. Lee has interviewed such musical greats as Stevie Wonder, Patti LaBelle, Luther Vandross, Jaheim, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, Kenny “Baby Face” Edmonds, the O’Jays, Wynton Marsalis, Whitney Houston, P. Diddy and Jill Scott, among many others. He now can be heard on air every day with his "Daily Dose" series tackling health issues which affect the community. (Listen to podcasts of the Doctor's "Daily Dose" HERE). And tune in to WBLS at midnight every Sunday through Thursday as the Doctor spins today's R&B until 5 a.m. (Listen live here: http://wbls.com/pages/3874639.php). In addition to his on-air roles, Lee also is the Community Affairs Director for WBLS. (See the Doctor's "Community Update" HERE). As part of his community-based work, Lee has developed strong ties to many local and national politicians and public figures, including President Clinton, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Mayor David Dinkins, and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. Lee also currently hosts the weekly live television program "Open," which broadcasts on BronxNet, a cable television station serving the Bronx and upper Manhattan. The program features news and topics affecting the Bronx community and also treats viewers to new and established musical guests. (For more information on "Open," please visit the program's website at http://www.bronxnet.org/tv/open/viewcategory/12/open). Lee also appears frequently in the Harlem community as the host of live music and other events, such as Harlem Summer Stage and R&B concerts at the Apollo Theater. In addition, his strong ties to the community are reflected in his many charitable endeavors. Among other activities, Lee is a founder and board member of the Make The Grade Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that provides mentoring and aid to school children. Lee also helps college students interested in radio careers by serving as a mentor for college radio stations and is also involved in corporate speaking and promotional work for businesses with an interest in the welfare of the community.
