Rob Lederman Wiki – Rob Lederman Bio
Rob Lederman is a morning radio host in Buffalo, New York, who is out of a job and others have been suspended after an on-air exchange comparing the skin tones of prominent Black women to toaster settings.
In a 45-second audio clip of The Morning Bull Show on 97 Rock tweeted by EPSN reporter Marcel Louis-Jacques, Lederman is heard rating his desirability of famous Black women based on the complexion of their skin and comparing it to a numbered toaster setting.
His age is unclear.
Rob Lederman Fired From Job
The owner of 97 Rock said late Wednesday that it had fired “Morning Bull” host Rob Lederman following an on-air exchange in which he compared toaster settings to the tone of Black women’s skin.
The conversation drew swift condemnation and led Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center to cancel its advertising with the station.
A statement from Cumulus Media late Wednesday said Lederman’s comments were in direct violation of the company’s programming principles and that “the remainder of the show’s on-air talent” had been suspended. The other two people involved in the conversation were lead host Rich “Bull” Gaenzler and co-host Chris Klein.
“We apologize, and deeply regret the incident,” the company’s statement said.
Lederman, meanwhile, told The Buffalo News that he was “horrified” by his words after he listened to a recording.
“I could easily see how someone could be offended by that. I get that,” said Lederman, who added, “It sounds terrible, and it is terrible.
In a 45-second audio clip shared on Twitter by Marcel Louis-Jacques, a Buffalo Bills beat reporter for ESPN NFL Nation, the conversation appeared to initially be focused on the morning ritual of making toast.

Gaenzler noted how high he likes his toaster setting. Lederman followed up by saying, “I may get into trouble for this,” and then described how he likens his toaster settings to women “I find to be attractive.”
Kathi Lederman is the wife of Rob Lederman, a stand-up comedian, radio, and television personality. The Radio host is in the spotlight after he compared their toast preferences to famous Black women’s skin tones during a segment … and yeah, it came off every bit as bad as you’d think.
