Broadcast Pioneers member Pete Thompson has been the “sports guy” at the Jersey Shore since 2004. He spent a decade doing local TV sports for WMGM-TV, NBC 40 (Wildwood) until that station was sold at the end of 2014.
Prior to his work there, Pete spent a long time in Nebraska at three different TV stations. He broke into the business at KDUH-TV, ABC 4 in Scottsbluff, Nebraska before leaving for a quick stint at KLKN-TV, ABC 8 in Lincoln, Nebraska in 1998. Two months after arriving in Lincoln, Pete was on the move again heading 56 miles east to KPTM-TV, FOX 42 in Omaha.
Before his time in the Cornhusker State, Pete wrote for The Temple News, was Sports Director for WRTI-FM radio at Temple, and interned (twice!) at WPVI-TV 6 ABC with Action News.
Pete currently spends four days a week on the radio as co-host of “The Sportsbash with Mike Gill” on 97.3 ESPN. He also serves as a part-time producer for CSN Philly, a fill-in anchor for SNJ Today in Millville, and as a weekly on-line contributor for the Cape May County Herald newspaper.
