WFRE Tom Whalen Bio

I was born and raised in Louisville, KY, with a huge group of family and friends still there! Go back at least twice a year for epic parties! Schooled at Fairdale High and Morehead St. University where I majored in Speech/Theatre and Radio/Television. I taught Theatre and English at Valley High School in Louisville for a year, then moved to New York City for 15 years, where I’m eternally grateful nobody had smartphones for evidence! I moved to Frederick in ’92 and have worked in radio ever since. My son Samuel Martin is my pride and joy! Frederick has the finest people and is the best place to live in America! You are my family and I love you all!
