Bob Domine has retired, officially.
Thirty-seven years after he was hired by Ed Kallay, a Louisville legend at WAVE-TV, he signed off the air last week.
Domine obviously loved what he did, respected as much if not more for his personality than any expertise in sports. During his farewell remarks, he gave viewers credit for any success he enjoyed as a broadcaster.
Like most like local sports analysts, he was often accused of bias toward the University of Louisville or Kentucky. This may explain why he showed in a green T-shirt for the recent football game. The observer believes Domine appreciates both schools. He’s a people person in every possible sense.
Domine is not going to disappear into the woodwork in retirement. He’s just too likable.
