The Schilling Show

The Schilling Show

Weekdays from Noon – 2pm
Live: (434) 977-1070 | Voicemail Hotline: (434) 218-2349

Rob Schilling is a respected voice and trusted name in the Charlottesville community, as well as a nationally recognized, Associated Press award-winning investigative journalist.

He and his wife, Joan, moved to Central Virginia from Southern California in 1998 seeking a more serene lifestyle. Shortly thereafter, Rob was elected to the Charlottesville City Council, the first and last Republican to have accomplished that feat since 1986.

In his four years of elected public service, Rob gained unique insight into the machinations of local government and politics. Rob’s informed viewpoint as an “outsider” who has served on the “inside” is unrivaled in Central Virginia media.

The Schilling Show is a venue for advocacy and change. While Rob takes strong stances on issues, all points of view are welcome, and Rob often hosts guests from divergent ends of the political and social spectrums.
