About the author

Bob Croce is the publisher behind Eye on Peabody. He started this blog to give his fellow Peabodyites a forum where they can share news, views, and discuss the issues that affect our hometown. And to satisfy his obsession with local, state, and national politics.

Bob grew up in West Peabody, and still resides there with his wife, Maureen. Over the years, he’s been active in city politics and other community endeavors, including making runs for both the city council and school committee.

As a professional, Bob has been a writer and journalist, and a business executive. He spent the first 14 years of his professional career working as a newspaper reporter, columnist, and editor, and past 14 years as an executive for B2B information and training companies.

He is currently co-host, along with Dick Jarvis, of the “You Make The Call” show, which is broadcast Wednesday nights, 8-9 p.m., on Peabody Access Telecommunications (PAT) Channel 99.
