It’s my great pleasure to welcome the latest addition to the Upcomingdiscs family.
Bob Ross was the Tampa Tribune’s film critic from 1985 to 2007. Before that, he worked as a proofreader, reporter and pop music critic. He also helped manage the first video store in Tampa in the early 1980s. A Florida resident since 1956, he graduated from Ocala High School and Eckerd College, where he majored in political science. A lifelong movie buff, he has published more than 4,000 reviews for the Tribune in addition to writing two weekly video columns and hundreds of entertainment-related feature stories. Now semi-retired, Bob is still a member of the Florida Film Critics Circle. He’s also a Facebook addict, easily reached at www.facebook.com/bob.ross1.
We’re looking forward to having Bob’s wit and wisdom on our pages going forward.
