If ever you’ve listened to afternoon sports updates at :15 and :45 past the hour on WBZ radio, you’ve heard the voice of Tom Cuddy providing the latest sports news, usually followed by a Paul Harvey-like anecdote somehow tied to the world of sports.
You won’t be hearing those stories any longer, as Cuddy has been laid off by WBZ as part of the latest round of cutbacks at the station.
Cuddy had been with the station since 1985, prior to that, Cuddy worked at WRSV Radio in New Hampshire from 1973 to 1976, WSLE Radio in New Hampshire from 1976 to 1977, and WXKS (Kiss 108) in Boston from 1982 to 1985.
Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Cuddy attended Catholic Memorial High School in West Roxbury and went on to Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts.
He also had a brief stint on WBZ-TV as a weekend sports anchor. He has also formed his own freelance radio service.
