From Cleveland, Tom attended Columbia University. After a radio stop in Florida, Tom teamed up with Bob in Petoskey Michigan and formed the morning team which eventually came to Indianapolis leading to the show’s syndication.



Born in London, Ohio. Chick began his broadcasting journey in West Virginia but eventually made it to WFBQ’s sister station in Indianapolis. When they had enough of him, he came on The Bob & Tom Show to do sports, take on announcer and commercial duties and assume the role of the one and only Mr. Obvious.

From St. Louis, Josh is the newest cast member of The Bob & Tom Show.  Josh’s career in stand-up comedy was propelled by his desire to work as little as possible (up to 45 minutes a day, max), stay up late and sleep in ’til ten.  Josh notes that being on The Bob & Tom morning show kinda screws up his plans, but he says, he’ll work through it.


Dean is the on-air producer and when he’s not putting calls on the air…he’s calling in on the air.  To give you an idea to his range of talent, he is both a brilliant musician as well as the idiotic caller on the Mr. Obvious Show. 


Ron is from Indianapolis. In addition to many great show characters, he is the voice of Donnie Baker. Swear to God he is.


Steve is one of America’s top celebrity impersonators. Steve is Donald Trump, Bill Clinton,George Bush, Al Gore, Larry King, Joe Biden, and many, many more. ‘Nuf said.
