It was originally named for the "Best of the Best", and subsequently associated with an everyday man character named Bob, and it proved extremely successful in its first implementation on Winnipeg, Manitoba's CFWM. It inspired Rogers Communications to license the Jack FM format at many of its stations, Corus Entertainment's subsequent Joe FM and Dave FM brands, and comparable moves at other stations.

The format was largely conceived by Howard Kroeger, a former executive at CHUM, after attending a friend's 40th birthday party.

So far, Honolulu, Hawaii, Omaha, Nebraska and Sacramento, California are the only North American markets where Bob FM has failed. In the Honolulu case Salem Communications acquired the station and likely would have jettisoned the format, regardless of its success, due to that company's programming philosophy. In Sacramento, the owner of the station requested that listeners "vote" whether the variety hits format or an 80s format should remain, as the owners were selling the frequency which housed the 80's format. The 80s format won, and 92.1 Bob FM turned into Flash 92.1. For the city and county of Honolulu, see City & County of Honolulu. ... “Omaha” redirects here. ... Sacramento redirects here. ...
