Todd Gibson, affectionately known as “Gibby” at the station, is a sports enthusiast who brings his passion for sports to life through his work. He boasts an impressive resume, having covered major sporting events like the Super Bowl and the Stanley Cup finals, along with numerous ACC games.
What sets Todd apart is his deep love for high school sports, which can be traced back to his own experiences as a quarterback and pitcher for Leipsic High School in northwest Ohio. For him, high school sports represent a purer form of the game, where young athletes play out of sheer love for their sport, driven by the spirit of teamwork and the bonds they share with their teammates.
Playing quarterback on a 10-0 team during his senior year in 1982, Todd’s fond memories of the camaraderie and competition continue to shape his passion for high school sports. He cherishes the unity and the sense of community that Friday night high school games bring.
