The BOB & TOM Show

Background

Inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame and a favorite of millions, THE BOB & TOM SHOW has a track record of generating ratings and revenue success, beating the competition and taking affiliates to the top. THE BOB & TOM SHOW is heard weekdays from 6 to 10 a.m. nationwide and on the American Forces Radio Network.

The Power of Funny

The reason why THE BOB & TOM SHOW continues to produce outstanding ratings in more than 100 affiliated stations is the team.

Tom Griswold calls the smart and talented cast the essence of their success – which consistently ranks their morning program No. 1 or in the Top 3 in 75% of their markets.

THE BOB & TOM SHOW has been inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame and is a 5-Time Marconi Awards winner for outstanding radio programming.

Tom Griswold
Show Host

Tom Griswold has become one of the most recognized names in radio – or as his staff calls him, “the name on the hat.” Tom stumbled into a bar one evening in Petoskey, MI, and started chatting with the bartender, Bob Kevoian. That chance meeting would spark the birth of The BOB & TOM Show.

From there, the world got to know Tom as the Ivy League-educated neurotic who always has an opinion and retorts at the ready. Tom leads the room each morning during the four-hour show. He’s also one of the best at conducting interviews with any well-known public figure.

For decades, Tom has entertained millions by just being him. Born in Cleveland, Tom went to Columbia University in New York City earning a degree in English Literature.

He is the father of seven children. Two of his sons (Sam and Willie) followed in his footsteps of comedy writing/stand-up and now work for the show.

In his free time, Tom loves being with his family and two golden retrievers. When not at home, he looks forward to hosting various charity events.

Kristi Lee
Show Host/News Director

Sitting at The BOB & TOM “News” desk, Kristi Lee is the voice of reason in the room – all while delivering the day’s relevant and lifestyle news.

Originally from Indianapolis, she is also a mother of two daughters. Kristi is a huge car enthusiast and even owns a classic Nissan Figaro.

She loves traveling, music, reading and working with local/national charities. As a former ESPN television host, she also enjoys sports and playing golf.

Chick McGee
Show Host/Sports Director

Chick McGee is a veteran of The BOB & TOM Show and sits at the sports desk every morning with the latest updates and the occasional “stupid world record.”

Born in London, Ohio, Chick’s been a Washington Football fanatic his entire life.

Chick’s voice isn’t just known for delivering sports, but also many classic BOB & TOM bits including his most notorious character, Mr. Obvious.

When not on the air, you can find him at home with the two “big sweeties – his lady dogs.”

Josh Arnold
Show Host

Josh Arnold is a stand-up comedian originally from St. Louis and was a frequent guest of The BOB & TOM Show before officially joining as a full-time co-host in 2016.

Josh quickly became a fan favorite as male listeners see him as a “guy’s guy” and female listeners find him to be smart and sensitive.

Josh is a savant of the English language which often leads to his sophisticated wordplay and an impressive library of puns.

Prior to joining the show, Josh had a varied resume from writing, acting, and even teaching English in South Korea.

If Josh isn’t on the air or touring the country doing stand-up, you’ll most likely find him reading a book, watching hockey or enjoying/studying a movie. Film is yet another topic he is an expert on.
