Doc Thompson Bio

Listen to Doc Thompson Weekdays 3 – 6 p.m. on Talk Radio 1270 AM WXYT


Doc Thompson grew up just across the lake, east of Cleveland. His earliest memories include his mom listening to Detroit radio in the car so he is very excited to finally be part of it. Doc has very large extended family located all over including a sister and brother-in-law who live in Michigan on the west side of the state.

Doc has been fired by great radio stations all across the country. He has worked in Richmond, Lincoln, and Las Vegas to name a few. He was instrumental in some of those stations winning 5 Marconi Awards, the equivalent of the Academy Award for radio excellence.

Laughing and making people laugh are important to Doc. His medium of choice is of course radio. He dabbles in many styles with sarcasm and satire usually present. Although he is candid and forthright he loves good spirited practical jokes.

His passions include great conversation, travel and good food. His palate is tempted by cheap wine, expensive beer and most things carne (PETA be damned).

His favorite books include Atlas Shrugged and 20,000 Leagues under the Sea.

His favorite movies include; Casablanca, Shawshank Redemption and Groundhog Day.

Doc is slowly leaning to speak Korean which seems a bit premature because he can barley speak English but he is trying to determine if his Korean in-laws are talking about him!
