Tom Edwards

Your Talk Show Producer/Announcer: 9am-noon

HOMETOWN:  I was born in Urbana, IL but after three weeks said, “let’s blow this pop stand.” We (the family) moved to Rock Island, IL where I lived until I was 18.


I grew up listening to KSTT in Davenport, IA and then KFMH (a great rock station in Muscatine, IA). By the age of 16, I was convinced I wanted to be in radio. My first gig however was running the radio and TV station on the USS John F. Kennedy (an aircraft carrier).

HOBBIES: I would say playing guitar and taking care of the dog.

FAVORITE “CELEBRITY” ENCOUNTER: A long time ago, I had lunch with John Cameron Swayze and his wife at his summer cottage

WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING IF YOU WEREN’T IN RADIO? probably producing videos and short films (which I do anyway).

FAVORITE QUOTE: “I used to rock and roll all night and party every day. Then it was every other day… now I’m lucky to find half an hour a week in which to get funky.” Homer Simpson
