Last call for WLTX sports director Bob Shields

May 26, 2010 5:42:00 PM - thestate.com

Players rarely know when to walk away from their sport. The same can’t be said about Bob Shields, the WLTX-19 sports director, who is walking away from sports.

He’s leaving the game of sports reporting how the great running back Barry Sanders left the game of football: on his own terms. Today is his last day after almost 30 years at the station.

Shields, 50, will become the vice president of Life Careers, a career management firm. He said he’s leaving because of personal and professional reasons.

“I’m never home for family dinners,” said Shields, who has two children, Gena, 10, and Kevin, 13. “We know what teenagers are capable of. We went through it, and dad needs to be in the house.”
