Dr. Randy Tobler

Dr. Randy Tobler is a board-certified Obstetrician Gynecologist, celebrating 33 years practice. He has a passion for teaching...patients, peers, and the public. A native of St. Louis, he was trained at the prestigious Washington University School of Medicine. Additionally, he is a hospital CEO, professional broadcaster and speaker, and accomplished musician. His work has been recognized with teaching, research and broadcast awards.

“The Randy Tobler Show” started in STL, and has received top ratings, with analysis and commentary on current events and culture. Now, he’s proud to bring his unique style to mid-Missouri, with the addition of a weekday drive time program on the Zimmer Radio Network. His non-negotiable broadcast principles are truth-seeking and calling out politically correct absurdity at every opportunity…all with a wink of humor and big nod to America’s First Principles and traditional values.

A father of three and husband of 40 years, Dr. Tobler is grateful to his wife, Heliene, and children Sean, Shannon, and Samantha for sustaining him through the trials of a serious illness in 1997. Their support and love, coupled with a deep faith that abides through any turbulence, serve as a constant reminder of the importance of perspective and commitment in life’s journey.
