reader-spotlight-how-i-got-sober-robFormer TV news journalist Rob Koebel’s future looked bright: he’d won an Emmy and worked his way up to being a reporter at a Wisconsin TV station. Then, in 2012, his ex-wife, a news anchor named Christi Paul who had worked for CNN and HLN, released a book called Love Isn’t Supposed to Hurt about her marriage to an abusive drunk—Koebel (though in the book his name is changed to Justin). This set Koebel off on the bender to end all benders—an event which culminated in him getting busted for peeing outside an Apple store. He was well enough known in Wisconsin for this incident to make the papers and as a result he lost his job. But Koebel didn’t want that to be the end of his story so he got sober and then packed up his bags and made his way to LA, where he’s landed acting roles in everything from Eastbound and Down to Under The Dome. In this episode, we talk about what it’s like to sell your Emmy and finding new dreams after your original ones were shattered, among other topics.
