John Rooke

A broadcast veteran of 33 years, John Rooke has spent more than two-thirds of his career living and working in Rhode Island television and radio. Since he listened to his grandfather s World War II era civil defense radio and picked up signals from all over the country, the voices in the box have motivated Rooke to be clear and concise with his own narratives. In Rhode Island Radio, he shares the humble beginnings of the powerful and influential industry of radio that Rhode Island helped shape.
