Eric Senich, Host

Eric Senich received his degree in journalism from Southern Connecticut State University and began his radio career in 1991. In addition to working full-time for the State of Connecticut, Eric is also the Saturday mid-day host for 95.1 WRKI, a Classic Rock station in Brookfield, Connecticut. Listen live to Eric every Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET on 95.1 FM locally or online at i95rock.com. Eric is also a staff writer for the Van Halen News Desk and has two other podcasts in the works.

As host of The Bob Crane Show: Reloaded, Eric brings both his radio/voice talents and a personal family connection. Eric’s father, Jim Senich, is Bob Crane’s first cousin. Eric’s heartfelt dedication to preserving his family’s legacy shines through in every episode of our podcast, and we are extremely grateful to him for all of his work and ongoing support.

Note: When Eric agreed to host this podcast, I was beyond thrilled, just as I was when he agreed to introduce Bob Crane's KNX 8th Anniversary Show. Eric is a tremendous radio talent, having worked in the broadcasting industry since 1991. He's a proficient writer with a degree in journalism, who explained to me that he takes a journalism approach to radio. A lifelong resident of Connecticut, Eric adores and treasures his family above all else. And Eric is one of the coolest, kindest, smartest people I know. You bring all that together, and something truly magical happens when Eric talks about his father's cousin Bob Crane. Eric and I both hope you enjoy our podcast, which we've been told "brings the book to life." Happy listening! —Carol Ford
