Tom’s lengthy tenure at The New School began when his guest lecture on radio arts led to an offer for fulltime employment. 32 years later, he still helps students perfect their on-air voices for both radio and television.

Tom has served for many years locally in positions such as music director, morning air personality, and voice talent at stations including WROW, WWOM, WRGB-TV, and Time Warner, as well as at WBZ-TV in Boston. His experience allows him to help students gain a deep understanding of station formats and real-world scenarios, while learning to properly develop and deliver their breaks. – New School Albany

Be the Media! workshops teach multimedia skills to community members in order to develop urgently needed independent local voices. Our goal is to empower the public through independent media making, supplying them with the tools to tell their own stories through different mediums of media including video, radio and journalism.

We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. For people who are hard of hearing or deaf, blind or low-vision, or whose physical limitations can interfere with a satisfying experience, let us know two weeks in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.
