TOLUCA LAKE, LOS ANGELES (KABC) --It was a very special day for ABC7, as our very own Rob Fukuzaki was inducted into the Southern California Sports Broadcasters Hall of Fame on Monday.
The special ceremony took place in Toluca Lake as Rob was honored for his distinguished achievement in sports broadcasting.
In true "Rob form," he thanked others for getting him to where he is today, including his parents.
"If there was a hall of fame for parents, you would be a unanimous first ballot. This honor, mom and dad, it's not for me, this is a tribute for you both. And I thank you so much, and love you so much," he said.
Rob started at ABC7 in 1994, and as ABC7 President and General Manager Cheryl Fair recalled, he looked like a 15-year-old kid with the beautiful booming voice of a 50-year-old man.
He has gone on to cover some of the biggest sports stories, including Super Bowls, NBA championships, college football championships and much more.
With as much as he's accomplished in the sports broadcasting world, Rob would tell you he's probably most proud of his work with the Heads Up Youth Foundation, of which he is the chairman.
Rob founded the organization with friends and family in 1997 and it has assisted disadvantaged youths in the Southland through sports programs.
