Following his personal life, it’s said that the radio personality has frequently talked about his wife, Sharon, on-air at WDIA. Bobby was inseparable from his beloved wife. Sharon was his other half.

According to close sources, those who were close to them would know that the lovely couple meant the world to each other. His wife’s opinion meant a lot to him and to WDIA listeners.

As Devin Steel said once, people felt like Sharon was considered to be a part of the radio station and listeners were willing to know her as well.

Mr. steel who had known the pair for almost 20 years shared a few more details about their relationship by saying that she would talk from a woman’s perspective at the time she was on the radio with Bobby.

In Mr. David’s point of view, the lovely couple had a very private personal life which was of course respected by a lot of people and looked up to. Mr. Steel referred to Mrs. Sharon as a humble and class-act type person.
