Rob Sneed is an award winning journalist who joined the NBC4 family as a reporter in March of 2017. He’s an experienced journalist. He’s a recent recipient of the 2017 Ohio Associated Press award for Best Investigative reporting for his coverage of the way parolee’s GPS devices are monitored (Brian Golsby). Prior to his work with NBC4, Rob reported for stations in St. Louis, Missouri, Cleveland, Ohio, Dayton, Ohio, and Fayetteville, Arkansas.
Rob gets a thrill out of chasing “Breaking News” as well as uncovering issues in the community and working to find resolutions. Rob has chased tornadoes, covered floods, interviewed President Clinton, and trained with firefighters. However, his favorite story was covering the year anniversary of the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Despite an eruption of gunfire, rioting, and reporters getting physically attacked, he got the story back to his viewers unscathed.
Out of all of Rob’s accomplishments, his biggest is being a good man. Rob always puts others before himself, especially his family. He recently lost his grandfather and came back to Columbus to be with his grandmother who had a huge impact on who he is today. Shout out to “Grandma Sneed”.
Rob is a proud graduate of The Ohio State University. He remembers dreaming about this moment as a teen while walking the halls at Walnut Ridge High School in Columbus, Ohio.
Rob’s favorite thing to do is pig out! Anyone who knows him knows he a huge foodie and is always looking for the next best restaurant to dine in. He also enjoys spending time with his friends, and always open to meeting new ones. He never meets a stranger, so if you see him out on the street, don’t hesitate to say “hello”.
Rob is committed to giving back to the community now that he’s home, and welcomes organizations to reach out. He also is always looking for a great story that’s important to you or your community. He can be reached on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
