Like many folks who return to “roots” back in the Midwest, Tom joining the WNAX family was a matter of coming home again. Tom is from just across the Big Sioux River – Rock Rapids, Iowa.

A graduate of the University of Northern Iowa and Brown Institute, Tom has reported on farm news and markets in Aberdeen and Mitchell in South Dakota and in Greeley, Colorado. You’ll hear Tom covering the farm news and markets through the day on WNAX.

We do keep Tom busy – when we give him time to catch a few winks in between assignments, he makes his home in Yankton, SD.
