About Tom


Story-telling and self-deprecating humor have made Lincoln native and University of Nebraska-Lincoln graduate Tom Stephens an enjoyable staple at The Ticket for both listeners and co-workers. Since the station’s launch in 2011, Tom has co-hosted the station’s mid-day show, most recently with Derrick Pearson.

Prior to joining The Ticket, Tom logged over 25 years in Lincoln radio, including the statewide Husker radio network — co-hosting talk shows, conducting pre-game and post-game interviews, and hosting scoreboard shows. He’s also been a part of many high school football and basketball broadcasts both before and since The Ticket.

A believer of “picking your favorite teams by age 6 and sticking with them throughout life,” Tom has suffered mightily as a Royals, Vikings, and Huskers nut… and lets us feel his hilarious pain daily.
