Tom Greer aka Mr. Greer is an audio producer, editor, brand influencer, on-air radio talent, and sports fanatic. Born and raised on Long Island, New York – Greer succumbed to the world of sports at an exceptionally early age. Albeit he played all throughout his youth, Greer eventually accepted that the chances of him going pro were slim to none – so he decided to talk about it instead. Tom found great solace off of the field, swapping his jersey for a microphone in order to bring his personal passion for the industry to life by way of the wide world of broadcasting. Pulling inspiration from his hometown favorites that included famed announcers, Howie Rose (Mets) and Bob Papa (Giants), he developed his own individual style behind the mic. At the time, Mike Francesca and Chris “Mad Dog” Russo’s unique approach of on-air debate fueled Greer’s fire as it was a new and unexplored avenue to discuss sports and the players within. Seeking to pursue this avenue professionally - Greer enrolled in, The Connecticut School of Broadcasting, which eventually led him to, The Grindhouse Radio. After a brief run interning as an engineer with GHR, Tom earned himself an on-air slot as a host of their sporting segment, PNG (Formally known as The Peanut Gallery).
