After 17 years of filling every concevible position at the station, Tom Fitzsimmons Thursday announced he is leaving KNCO to move on to new ventures.
Whether it was sports play by play, or hosting the morning show, or being out in the community, everyone appreciated Tom’s love of the people of Nevada County. Tom shares with us he started at KNCO as a sports host and play by play announcer. During his tenure, his job titles have included morning show host of both KNCO AM and FM, Program Director, News Director, Operations Manager, and most recently Station Manager. If there was a job that need to be done, Tom knew how to get it done.
We asked Tom what should we should tell people when they ask where is Tom going and what will He be doing?
