Burn the toast and smell the coffee with Tom and Laura
Tom & Laura took over the hosting of Lubbock’s First News on October 1, 2012 after Chad Hasty moved to the midday timeslot on KFYO.
Tom Collins is your KFYO Morning Show co-Host, Monday through Friday 6:00-8:30 am. He has been on and around the “air-waves” since 1980, KSEL AM-FM, KEND, KTLK, KKIK FM, KZII and 16 at KFYO. Tom is an independent business operator involved in marketing and advertising. He is a Texas Tech Graduate with a B.A. in telecommunications and business minor. Tom is married with two kids, two dogs “Jimmy Don” and “Memphis” and a worthless cat named “Spin.” He’s old enough to know-better, and young enough to do it again!
Laura Mac is a graduate of Texas Tech with a B.A. in Telecommunications. Her broadcast experience includes co-hosting several radio morning shows on KSEL, KZII, and KONE. She is also a television spokesperson, and is a telephony voice talent for companies such as Home Shopping Network, Samsung, Sears, Alltel, AT&T, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Official Payments Corporation, and numerous phone systems installed on a global scale. She and her husband have four children and three grandchildren…even though she doesn’t look old enough to be a grandmother!
