MOVING UP THE LADDER IN CHARLOTTE

Connecticut School of Broadcasting

Tom Miner is no stranger to the microphone. He began his passion in middle school, reading announcements over the school's loudspeaker. Tom soon anchored high school news reports all over the greater Charlotte metropolitan area. "I enjoy sharing important information with people who needed to hear it", Tom recalls. It didn't take long before he had his first paid radio position - doing traffic reports, while still in school. "It was surreal" Tom says. Tom was accepted to the Connecticut School of Broadcasting campus in Charlotte, where he began learning to transform his radio skills to television and digital media.

"Tom was bitten by the bug of broadcasting at an early age" recalls veteran instructor John Casson. "His passion and experience earned him a seat usually reserved for college grads" Casson continued. It didn't take long before local station executives took notice. He was soon hired by FOX-46 in Charlotte. Besides television, you can also catch Tom reporting news and traffic reports all the way to Washington D.C. for a cluster of stations he represents, including local radio stations in the Charlotte market.
