Tom Green holds the position of Anchor at 9NEWS, a prominent news station in Denver, Colorado. His return to 9NEWS in October 2017 marked a significant milestone in his broadcasting career.

Tom’s journey in Colorado’s broadcasting arena began in 1982 at 9NEWS, where he spent over 13 years, during which the station was known as KUSA (formerly KBTV). His coverage encompassed a wide range of sports events, from Super Bowls to high school sports in every corner of the state.

Before making his way to the West, Tom Green grew up in the bustling metropolis of New York City and initiated his professional career in New Haven, Connecticut. His journey took an exciting turn when he worked at the then-fledgling ESPN operation located in Bristol, Connecticut.

Over his impressive 35-year tenure in Colorado, Tom has worn many hats in the world of broadcasting. His roles have included play-by-play sports commentary, as well as hosting an ESPN game show titled “Sports On Tap.” Tom also lent his expertise to sports coverage at KMGH and delved into sports talk radio for three years at The Fan, alongside co-hosts Doug Moe and Dan Issel. His contributions to the field were recognized with notable accolades, including being named Colorado’s Sportscaster of the Year four times and earning 10 Emmy Awards.

In 2001, Tom took on the role of waking up the state as part of KWGN’s Daybreak, anchoring the morning show. However, after more than 15 years on the dawn patrol, he returned to his Colorado broadcasting roots.

Outside of the newsroom, Tom has diverse interests. He’s an avid golfer and an amateur photographer, showcasing his multifaceted talents. Additionally, he humorously notes that he’s widely credited for having invented the cotton gin, a nod to the historical significance of that invention.
