August 1993: Tom Bunger arrives at KNOM

August 15, 1993

From Tacoma, Washington, Tom Bunger is among KNOM’s six volunteers, all new.

He’s assigned as news reporter, working under the supervision of news director Katy Clark. In 1994, Tom is hired as a salaried news director, a position he holds for three years before leaving the station for a career in the computer industry.

It is Tom who creates KNOM’s website in 1997, and he continues to help out the station from time to time.
