Tom Wait

tom wait 620x466 2013 2 Tom WaitTom Wait joined CBS2 and KCAL9 in March 2013 as an Inland Empire reporter. A Southern California native, he worked in New York City, Detroit and Kansas City, Missouri, before coming home.

Wait considers reporting for CBS2 and KCAL9 to be a dream come true. While growing up in Claremont, he made it a habit to watch the legendary KCAL9 anchor team of Pat Harvey and Jerry Dunphy.

During his career, Wait has covered numerous major news events. He began his career at News 12 The Bronx and News 12 Brooklyn in 2003. After several years in New York, Wait joined the CBS station in Kansas City, where he covered the largest tornado to ever touch down in Kansas – a storm that destroyed the town of Greensburg. While at the ABC station in Detroit, he covered crime, politics and the auto industry, including an assignment that sent him to Washington D.C. to report on the auto bailout hearings.

Wait is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley and has a master’s degree in journalism from New York University. You can find Tom on Facebook or Twitter at @tomthereporter.
