Bobby Swofford joined the 5NEWS team in August of 2012 and dove right into the sports scene. He comes to us after spending more than eight years covering sports for various print editions.
Bobby is a Roland graduate so he already has his thumb on the pulse of local sports.
Bobby graduated with a degree in mass communications with an emphasis in television from the University of Central Arkansas. While there, Bobby was a member of the football team and was also the sports director for the university’s news broadcasts and hosted a sports talk show.
Not everyone gets to do what they love for a living but Bobby is doing just that, reporting on sports.
If he’s not doing “research” at an area sporting event, Bobby can be found at a local golf course or being a professional man of leisure.
