Hey gang, Tom here. I suppose you’d like to know a little bit about me.
I hale from the state of Illinois. Born in Charleston, grew up around Champaign-Urbana, and still have a number of friends and family in that area. In January 2013, my wife and I made the biggest move, and scariest move of our lives, and relocated to Amarillo, Texas. While at the time I was unsure what would become of it, it’s safe to say it’s the best thing that could have happened to us, and very glad we did it!
I’ve been a fan of radio since a young age. Mainly through sports. Always been a big sports fan, especially baseball, and always wanted to be a sports broadcaster of some kind. Went to Parkland College in Champaign-Urbana to pursue that career, and after learning more about the industry, I came to love radio as a whole!
You can listen to me mornings from 5:30 to 9 with Morgan Tanner on the Eagle Morning Show, where I do news updates, and whatever else I can to make Morgan laugh. I’m also the Production Director for Alpha Media Amarillo, so just about every commercial you hear on air goes through me in some fashion.
Hobbies? Yeah, I got a few. Like I said, I’m a big sports fan, and I’m passionate about my teams. Being an Illinois guy, that’s where my fandom lies. HUGE Cubs fan (baseball is my favorite sport). Also a Chicago Bears and Bulls fan, and a University of Illinois fan for college sports, since that’s where I grew up. I love watching and talking sports. I have a podcast (Tom Talks Baseball Podcast), that I do with our own David Lovejoy!
I love to stay active as well, and try to be as healthy as I can! Whether working out, softball, disc golf, etc., I try to keep moving! When I do decide to take it easy, I’m a video game nerd. Modern or retro gaming, I’m a fan of it, and play quite often on my down time.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this chance to get to know me! Thanks for checking out my page, and hope you like what you see! Talks to you again soon!
