The summer of 1999 was hot, humid and sunny. Chris Bobbitt remembers it well: He had been hired to push carts outside of Walmart Store 100 in Bentonville, Arkansas, a job that set him on the path to buying his first car. And, in some ways, to becoming Walmart and Sam’s Club Radio’s newest on-air personality.
“I got a beautiful tan that summer,” Chris recalls with a smile.
It’s important to know that Chris smiles a lot. He appreciates making people laugh, and he says he’s looking forward to bringing joy to associates every time he gets behind the microphone.
“I get to do something that I love.”
“My career in radio started 16 years ago,” Chris explains. “I started in terrestrial radio on ‘Three B Radio,’ and we owned that show. We all gave ourselves titles, and I served as Maximum President.”
From there, Chris went on to work in television news for eight years, where he produced every show in every timeslot—and developed a journalistic flair for telling stories. It’s that same flair he looks forward to bringing to stores, clubs and DCs around the country.
