Bob Neumeier Career

Hartford Whalers

Neumeier’s first employment in broadcasting was with WTIC in Hartford, Connecticut, where he worked with Bill Rasmussen and Larry Pleau to call play-by-play for the Hartford Whalers, including the memorable “Brawl at the Mall” in April 1975 during a playoff series with the Minnesota Fighting Saints. Neumeier departed the Whalers in 1979 to work as a sports anchor at WFSB in Hartford.


Bob Lobel, who had replaced Roger Twibell as the primary sports anchor at WBZ-TV in Boston in 1981, recommended Neumeier for the weekend sports anchor role. Neumeier was replaced by Jerry Azar and reassigned to a reporting post after only six months. Following the retirement of Don Shane, WBZ appointed Neumeier as a weekend sports anchor in 1989. From 1993 through 1995, Neumeier co-hosted the Patriots Game Day Pre-Game Show on WBZ radio with Tim Fox.

Neumeier joined WBZ Radio as a play-by-play analyst for the Boston Bruins in 1995. Steve Burton took over as weekend sports anchor, but he stayed with the station. By the year 2000, Neumeier had become bored of traveling with the Bruins and saw WBZ-TV, where Bob Lobel was the lead sports anchor, as a dead end. After the 1999-2000 season, he resigned as a Bruins announcer and departed WBZ-TV when his contract expired that summer.

NBC Sports

Neumeier won the Caesars Palace World Series of Handicapping in 1990, defeating about 350 of the world’s greatest handicappers. In October of that year, NBC engaged him as a traveling correspondent for their coverage of the Breeders’ Cup. He was elevated to lead reporter for the 1991 Breeders’ Cup, conducting interviews in the winner’s circle. Neumeier was promoted to the position of handicapper in 1992. After NBC acquired the rights to the races in 2001, he became a member of the Triple Crown broadcast crew.

Further Information

Bob Neumeier collapsed during a telecast from Churchill Downs on May 1, 2009, and was rushed to Audubon Hospital in Louisville. He didn’t run in the Kentucky Derby, but he did run in the Preakness Stakes later that month. Neumeier was admitted to the hospital on October 29, 2014, after suffering a stroke. He was unable to attend the 2014 Breeders’ Cup or the 2015 Kentucky Derby, although he did appear in a pre-recorded part during the Derby telecast. His balance and coordination were impacted by the stroke, but not his motor abilities or speech. He returned for the 2015 Preakness Stakes broadcast on NBC.
