 THE DISC JOCKEYS


Tom Bryant
 

In his youth, Tom Bryant was a real 'ham'. A native of North Dakota, Tom was in 1952 the youngest licensed ham radio operator in the state. Taking his love of the airwaves into his young adult years, Bryant as a teenager entered commercial broadcasting at hometown KFYR radio & TV in Bismarck. As one of the great pictures on his website show (www.members.home.net/tjbdx) Tom was involved in a myriad of responsibilities for the North Dakota station. After a few years of employment at that locale, he moved over to KFJM in Grand Forks, North Dakota. When 1960 rolled around, Tom Bryant went north of the border to CJOB AM/FM in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He gained further experience as the host of the all-night show. Then in '62, it was back to Bismarck for a stint at KBOM (Mandan). Over the next 2 years, Bryant would twice more cross the border. In '63, he secured a gig at CJQM AM & FM in Winnipeg, followed by more North Dakota record-spinning at KXGO in Fargo/Valley City. During the latter run, he also did TV at KXJB. In the summer of '64, Bryant made a move that unbeknownst to him at the time, would geographically be the last one in his long and successful career. The Music City beckoned, so Tom went to WWGM-AM. While at 'WGM, his skill as a production wizard began to attract attention in the market. By 1967, Bryant relocated his blade and splicing tape to legendary 650 WSM-AM. For the next 30 plus years, Bryant was involved in both Nashville and national broadcasting. In 1975, longtime co-worker and legendary Country DJ Ralph Emery brought Tom over to his syndicated radio program. For the next 7 years, Bryant handled producer and engineer duties for Emery. The show was aired on 500 radio stations across the US and Canada during those years. Later of course, Ralph Emery would go national on The Nashville Network. By 1982, Tom locally focused full-time on his WSM duties with added work at WWTN-FM. On top of that 'The Voice of Nashville' was also a national presence...with his voice coming through on spots aired across the USA. On March 1, 1998, Tom Bryant 'retired' from WSM. Notice the word retire is in quotation marks. That's because when you've been in the business as long as Tom has, you never really leave it. Such a ham! These days, Tom Bryant remains available for commercial voiceovers. You can e-mail him at tjbdx@home.com
