Born in a small town in Virginia, Tom reached the top in his early adulthood. It wasn’t until recent times that he began to question how he ever managed to be so fantastic. Of course, being in the spotlight for so many years and having been one of the greatest news anchors of all time, Tom Brocock’s sudden hiatus from prime time left his audience in confusion and dismay. Following all of their sorrow, these poor people started partition to ban any news anchor of overwhelming awesomeness to have the ability to “just vanish from sight.” But in the end, the partition failed to gain any supporters because as it turned out no one really cared about news anchors anyway. Tom continued to be sighted a various events around the country, such as the The Old Fiddler’s Convention. Here Tom played a banjo and was chased off the stage by an angry mob insisting that banjos were the devil’s instrument and that he needed and intervention from Charlie Daniels to regain his salvation. After seeing Charlie for a few months, Tom decided it was time to get back to the desk and make a comeback. Welcome back my old friend.
