More About Tom Leach:
At age 16, Tom started his broadcasting career at a small radio station in his hometown of Paris, Kentucky working around his studies and playing baseball for the Bourbon County Colonels. He quickly advanced from reporting on stats to doing play-by-play commentary.
As a high school senior, and as noted in his year book, Tom listed his ultimate career goal: to become the next Voice of the Wildcats. Now he follows in the footsteps of Cawood Ledford, Ralph Hacker and others who have called the games for the Cats.
Tom began his UK broadcasting career on the UK Radio Network in 1989 as host of the post game scoreboard and call-in shows. Eight years later, he was named the play-by-play voice for Kentucky football and the basketball responsibilities were added in 2001. He's been named Kentucky Sportscaster of the Year four times.
Another Bluegrass tradition that is part of Tom's broadcasting resume is horse racing. Tom is also a two-time winner of the prestigious national Eclipse Award for excellence in coverage of thoroughbred racing.
Tom is married to former Lexington TV news anchor Robyn Rabbeth; they have two children--Connor and Caroline.
