"The first thing you notice about Rob," says Richard Brumfield, co-editor-at-large at AmericaWebNews, "is his quick wit." Brumfield goes on to describe his friend and colleague as a voracious reader who "never goes anywhere without a book in his bag." These qualities, from which Tucker surely has benefited a lot both as a writer and a doctor, are just some of the things the management of AmericaWebNews appreciates about him. Those and Brumfield's recommendation contributed to his current status as editor in addition to being a writer.
Tucker's responsibilities, aside from his continuous supervision of the articles on Livin the Life, the site's health section, are to oversee all the other writers and the topics for each day. He is also tasked to come up with the creative decisions for the site.
Writing has always been Robert Tucker's first love, but his interest in the sciences as well landed him in medical school, from which he graduated as one of the top five students in his class. He went through a few more years of education, specializing in pediatrics.
All the while, Robert never put his writing on hold. He was the editor-in-chief of his high school paper, which he considered as something he used "to pass the time and meet the girls." He did not meet the girls, but he did make use of the time to hone his craft. He sent a few reviews and short stories to some online magazines, and tried to have his work published in journals.
In college, however, he began writing for the school paper and tried his luck once again with online and actual journals. His efforts paid off, and Rob has since been published a considerable number of times. "It's easier today," he relates, "to get published especially online, compared to my high school days. Plus I've learned to write a little better, know a little more."
He enjoys having conversations with kids, which is part of the reason why he became a pediatrician, and now has two of his own with wife and fellow pediatrician Laura. Their kids, Kevin Jay, six months, and Carla Mae, three, are Robert's inspiration at work and for his writing. "Just looking at them... The feeling is beyond words," he says.
Now, Tucker begins the enviable task of making sure AmericaWebNews continues its development as one of the premier magazine site online. First, he is set to oversee the launch of the highly-anticipated ameri-webs.com mobile app.
