The Boss. That's who Bob Wynn was. The boss of some 200 shows divided amongst NBC, ABC, CBS, and PBS from the 1960s to the 1990s. As hard as it was to negotiate the muddy waters of network management, high-school dropout Bob Boss Wynn demanded - and received! - total control of the shows assigned to him in his freelance work.
