Tom Fitzsimmons is the Program Director for Nevada County Broadcasters, and morning show host at KNCO NewsTalk 830, but his favorite job is being husband to Roxanne and Dad to his daughter's Katie and Kelly, and step dad to Tyson and Megan. Tom and Roxanne just became grandparents with the birth of Megan's daughter, Hazel Virginia. Tom also is the voice of High School Football and Basketball play by play. His hobbies include playing and watching all sports and taking long hikes both locally and in the Sierras with his dog, Angel. He also has taken up distance running and just started to get into road cycling.

Just wanted to say “Thanks”

Thanks to everyone for your well wishes and support over the past couple of weeks.  Yeah, I guess you can say I was surprised as anyone that I was no longer at KNCO and doing the morning news show.  But what happened was just an internal problem that needed to be worked out between management and myself.  The issue was not supposed to be made public…but so much for that in this age of instant access.  But it is great to be back on the air, and waking everyone up for another great day in the foothills.

Hey Tom,

One of the beauties of a small town...everyone knows everything. Glad you are hanging around. Your name and voice completely mean "Nevada County." to me.

Tom, I was so happy to hear your voice back on the radio! I would have deserted for sure if you'd left. You are the heart and soul of KNCO, and such a positive personality for Nevada County. Keep up the good work!

Glad to have you back at the helm. Everyone carried on well, but it's still great to hear you in the am.
