    I always enjoyed working with Tom, covering trials at the Hamilton County Courthouse in the late 1970s. He was truly one of the nicest people I’ve ever worked with in a long TV career.

    I worked with Tom at WLWT near the end of his career as a journalist. I had heard about Tom's reputation as a great reporter and his knowledge of the Cincinnati area was great. I relied on Tom a lot during my first year or two at Channel 5. I never met a kinder, warmer person in radio or tv and I'm so glad to have called Tom my friend. My condolences to his family and friends. May God comfort his family and friends.

    Tom set the standard in the WLWT newsroom for first-rate reporting. He made a difficult news beat look easy - he was that good. His quiet example influenced everyone with whom he worked. His warmth and unfailing good nature were a blessing to all who knew him. Thank you, Tom, for your friendship and for showing the way. May you have eternal rest.
