Some RV History
In October 1989, Robbie left the CBS Broadcast Group to launch Vorhaus Public Relations, Inc. At CBS Television and CBS News he held various jobs in corporate communications, advertising, and promotion, and for several years was a headline producer for the “CBS Evening News with Dan Rather.”
As a journalist, Robbie became embedded in the New York City Police Department as an anti-crime (undercover) police officer, patrolling the New York City subway system citywide. Also as a journalist, Robbie worked in various jobs ranging from a baker in the fabled Parisian bakery, Poilâne; as one of the first male telephone operators in the US, as a wine apprentice at Chateau Reynier outside Bordeaux, France; as well as an overnight clerk in a 7-Eleven, a carnival construction worker, and a disco bouncer.
Robbie lives in Sag Harbor, New York, with his wife, Candace, a Feng Shui consultant, their two children, and very cute dog, Ollie. Robbie is currently writing his new book, “One Less, One More™,” along with enjoying time in his organic vegetable garden and clamming in knee-deep water.
