If you have ever watched and enjoyed the Phoenix Suns on television, it is no doubt because of Bob Adlhoch.
The Phoenix Suns hired Bob in 2001 as their TV producer and director. He was later promoted to Executive Producer, overseeing content for, producing and directing Suns game broadcasts on Fox Sports Arizona.
Bob has been part of the sports production community in the Valley since 1990. After graduating with honors from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications at Arizona State University with a BA in broadcast journalism, he worked for 5 years as a freelance graphics operator and producer.
Bob also worked at Cox Communications producing and directing live sporting events as well as studio programs. He was part of the team behind the channel launch of Cox 9 (now Cox 7) and was instrumental in the live Thursday night high school football broadcasts that have since become a programming staple for Cox.
A past recipient of 20 Rocky Mountain Emmy® Awards for producing, directing and graphic design, Bob was also selected to the Phoenix Business Journal’s Forty Under 40 program in 2009. In 2017 he was inducted into the prestigious Silver Circle Society in the Rocky Mountain Southwest Chapter of The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
Bob is a long-time member of both NATAS’ local board of governors and executive committee as well as the chapter’s past-president and national past trustee, has been elected to a two-year term on the National Emmy® Awards Committee, which oversees the Daytime Emmys®, News/Documentary Emmys®, Sports Emmys® and Technology/Engineering Emmys®. In his role, Adlhoch will serve as the voice of NATAS’ regional chapters to the national governing body.
Being a masterful producer and director of sports for television is what Bob does. Being a devoted husband to Kellie, an amazing father to MacKinley and Jackson, and being an example of a true friend and involved citizen in his community, is who Bob is.
