About Bobby Ross Jr.

I hate flying, but I love on-the-ground reporting — so I spend plenty of time in the air.

My journalistic travels have taken me to all 50 U.S. states, six Canadian provinces and 12 other countries.


Bobby Ross Jr.

I’ve written thousands of news stories, trend pieces, features and columns for The Oklahoman (1993-2002), The Associated Press (2002-2005) and The Christian Chronicle (2005-present).

Besides my full-time work, I’m a media columnist for GetReligion and a freelance reporter for national news outlets ranging from Religion News Service to The Washington Post to Christianity Today. 

My byline has appeared everywhere from the Paris-based international wire service Agence France-Presse to the front page of the Los Angeles Times to the website of USA Today.

And talk about burying the lede: I’m crazy in love with my wife, Tamie, and the super-proud father of our son Brady and daughter-in-law Mary, our son Keaton and our daughter Kendall. I’m passionate about my faith, Texas Rangers baseball and country music (the classic kind).

Check out my top stories. Find me on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Authory. Hey, if you’re really bored, Google me.
