Biography:

A 1991 graduate of ASU, Tom joined the Office of Communications and Marketing in September of 2006 after spending 16 years as a local radio and TV journalist and sports broadcaster.

Since his arrival, he has won four Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) Awards for feature writing and shared in numerous American Advertising Federation-San Angelo ADDY® Awards for the ASU website and ASU Magazine. He was nominated for 2008 and 2012 Staff Excellence Awards.

As a student, Tom cut his teeth in media as sports editor of the Ram Page from 1990-91 and received his bachelor’s degree in journalism in 1991. Since 1990, he has been a fixture on local radio and television, first as news/sports director at KGKL Radio, and then as “Top of the Morning” anchor and later sports director at KLST-TV.

Starting in 1998, he has logged literally thousands of bus miles traveling as the radio play-by-play announcer for the San Angelo Outlaws and Saints hockey teams, San Angelo Colts baseball team and San Angelo Stampede Express arena football team. As the first director of media relations and broadcasting for the newly-revived Colts in 2000, he was a member of the front office staff that was named Organization of the Year by the Texas-Louisiana League. He has also handled sports broadcasting duties for Central and Lake View high schools and ASU.

A San Angelo native, Tom traveled extensively with his Air Force family, living in the Philippines, Iowa, San Antonio, Alaska and England before returning to San Angelo in 1986. His wife, Nana, is an ASU nursing graduate employed by Shannon Clinic. They share their home with a dapple dachshund named Baileys and a geriatric long-haired chihuahua named Junior.
