The Bob & Tom Show
With a foundation built around comedy and talk, The Bob & Tom Show features news, sports, lifestyle content, and interviews with today’s top actors, authors and newsmakers. The show is also America’s leading media outlet for the best and developing comedians on the circuit.
More than just a comedy how, The Bob & Tom Show also features live performances from singers, songwriters, and musicians. The show has won five Marconi Awards; the highest award in radio from the National Association of Broadcasters. The Bob & Tom Show has released over 60 comedy CD’s and DVD’s and produced specials for Comedy Central and present live comedy concerts nationwide via The Bob & Tom Comedy All-Stars Tour.
The Bob & Tom Show is now heard on over 100 radio stations coast to coast. The program airs live weekdays from 6am-10am ET. It began national syndication in 1995 from its flagship station in Indianapolis. Show parodies, songs, bits, and more are produced by a large staff of writers, musicians, artists, performers, and misfits.
No one on the planet has a more complicated life than Tom. The staff isn’t too sure what he does in his free time because he’s always, “gotta go.” From bluffing his way through an Ivy League school to raising his seven children, tom tends to aid in the show going off the rails. From Cleveland, Tom attended Columbia University. After a radio stop in Florida, Tom hooked up with Bob in Petoskey Michigan and formed the morning team which eventually came to Indianapolis in 1983.
Chick, a lifelong Washington Redskins super fan, is “Your Sports Buddy.” He is the one to put Tom in his place all while delivering the occasional “Hahn-shot” punchline. when not on air, you can find him at home with his “big sweeties,” aka his two dogs. Born in London, Ohio, Chick began his broadcasting journey in West Virginia but eventually made it to WFBQ’s sister station in Indianapolis. When they had enough of him, he came on the Bob and Tom Show to do sports, take on announcer and commercial duties and assume the role of the one and only Mr. Obvious.
Kristi is the voice of reason in a chorus of goofballs, while delivering the day’s lifestyle and entertainment news. A mother of two and a single woman, Kristi’s life is a non-stop roller coaster. She does all this and wrangles the boys in the morning from 6a-10a. Kristi joined the show in 1984 as News Director. Kristi is a native of Indianapolis and attended Indiana University. She has also worked in television with Fox Sports and ESPN.
Josh is the newest addition to the cast, even though he wasn’t the first choice (he was just the first one to say yes). Josh is a single guy who’s been touring the country as a stand-up comedian for over a decade. With his stand-up sensibilities and a library of incredibly bad puns, Josh fits in seamlessly. From St. Louis, Josh is the newest cast member of The Bob & Tom Show. Josh’s career in stand-up comedy was propelled by his desire to work as little as possible (up to 45 minutes a day, max), stay up late and sleep in ’til ten. Josh notes that being on The Bob & Tom morning show kinda screws up his plans, but he says, he’ll work through it.
Donnie Baker (aka Ron Sexton)
Ron joined the show as a voice actor. His Donnie Baker character has become a fan favorite with millions of Bob & Tom listeners and YouTube views worldwide.
Dean is the on-air producer and has been with the show since 1988. When he’s not putting calls on the air…he’s calling in on the air. To give you an idea to his range of talent, he is both a brilliant musician as well as the idiotic caller on the Mr. Obvious Show.
