texas country reporter's "texas tribute" with the south texas symphonic orchestra!


Bob and Kelli Phillips have made a career of staying in constant contact with their audiences. In the early 70s, Bob and a group of journalists at KDFW started the program "4 Country Reporter" as a way to cover news in small towns and out of the way places.

In 2021, the show, now called "Texas Country Reporter" is seen by more that a million people each week on 26 different television stations in 19 Texas markets and nationally on RFD-TV. TCR now holds the record for being the longest, independently produced, television program in the United States.


Celebrating TCR's 50th year of broadcasting, Bob and Kelli will appear with the South Texas Symphonic Orchestra on October 9, 2022 in the beautiful Lila Cockrell. The concert will feature Bob and Kelli on-stage with the orchestra as they play Texas-themed music, narrated by Bob and Kelli.


On Saturday afternoon, October 8, 2022 from 4:00 to 6:00 PM you will have a chance to meet Bob and Kelli IN-PERSON at a reception in their honor at the Crockett Tavern in downtown San Antonio. Each ticket holder will receive a copy of Bob's latest book, "A Good Long Drive" perfect for an autograph! CLICK HERE for ticket information to the reception.
