Tom Dupree grew up in Long Island NY and relocated to the sunshine state at 10 years old with his family! He’s the youngest of four siblings, he has 2 older brothers and an older sister so he understands no matter how old he gets he’ll always be “the baby”! Tom spent most of his life playing baseball and at one point thought that’s where his future might take him. Later in life he started playing guitar and then got the idea that if he can’t be a famous musician, might as well talk on the radio and introduce famous musicians!
After high school, he attended the Connecticut Schools of broadcasting in Tampa, where he was in the first graduating class and was the first from the school to get a radio station internship! He got his start in Tampa at Star 95.7 in the promotions department, from there he went on to do afternoons in Homosassa, Florida, at Citrus 95.3 for 5 years….He then made his way back into Tampa doing weekends at the world famous 93-3 FLZ before moving to Gainesville Florida where he’s worked Middays at Kiss 105-3 for over 8 years!
Tom has 2 kids a daughter named Brooke who was born in 2008 and a son Evan born in 2015. He feels honored and lucky to be part of the Z88.3 family! “I feel God called me here and I trust in him with every choice I make!! Thanks for listening to Z88.3!”
