From Chernobyl and the Panama Canal, to The Amazon Jungle and the Black Sea, he has shown Eyewitness News viewers how far away places affect our lives here in Southeast Texas.

Tom also covers national politics and stories that relate to energy, the environment, and the economy.

His award-winning reports include three regional Edward R. Murrow Awards, the most recent in 2010 for an in-depth look at overcrowded trauma centers.
