After an 11 year football coaching career, the last 6 at St. John Fisher College in Upstate New York, Thom Abraham left the sidelines to pursue a broadcasting career. Abraham became a college football analyst for the Empire Sports Network in 1997, and began doing a local midday radio show in Rochester, NY. Abraham’s radio career would lead him to a morning show in Florida, followed by afternoons in Alabama and Tennessee. Along the way, he did pre-game shows for Alabama, Middle Tennessee and Vanderbilt football, along with a Tennessee Titans pregame show with former Titans President Jeff Diamond, and former Oilers All Pro Al Smith.
Abraham also hosted numerous players shows, and was the play by play voice of Arena football teams in SWFL, Huntsville, AL and Nashville, TN. Abraham also teamed with former Alabama All-American Mike Johnson to broadcast Birmingham Iron games in the AAF.
Abraham continues to be heard in Alabama on the ESPN affiliate there owned by former Alabama All SEC player Wes Neighbors.
