Tom Dempsey grew up in Oceanport, New Jersey. As a child, his fondest memories took place while celebrating July 4th with his family on Bailey Island, Maine. He had early aspirations of being President of the United States, but later found out he was best suited for television.
He attended the University of Miami and was able to graduate with majors in Broadcast Journalism and Theatre in May of 2010. Tom's best memory of college was winning the Homecoming King contest in fall of 2008 after performing celebrity impressions. He is a huge fan of the school's football team, and will forever be proud to be a Hurricane.
Tom's favorite hobbies are playing video games, watching and playing football and grilling.
He is very excited to be part of WHSV, and looks forward to getting to know the great people of the Shenandoah Valley!
