"Some say he's the worst showman this city's ever seen. Some say he's a walking disaster. A loose cannon. Well, tomorrow night, the name Buster Moon will go down in entertainment history once and for all, as he and this bunch of bumbling amateurs attempt to re-stage the show that brought down his theater."
Bob is a news reporter who documents Buster Moon's singing competition. After the Moon Theater collapses, he insulted Buster's character and decisions, even to the point of calling his singers, "a band of bumbling amateurs".
Bob is introduced covering the auditions for Buster's competition. He interviews several animals in line, including a hippo and Mike.
Later, Bob reports on the aftermath of the Moon Theater's destruction, and covers Buster's makeshift concert in the ruins. While skeptical of it's quality at first, he is won over after Rosita and Gunter's performance of "Shake It Off".
"Well, it seems I'm not the only one who actually enjoyed that."
