A WEEKLY COUNTDOWN OF THE TOP TEN STORIES OF THE WEEK.
FEATURING REAL LIFE BROTHERS,
MATT AND BEN TOMPKINS
Matt and Ben are brothers who grew up in Hastings, NE, St Joe, Missouri and Valley, NE. They moved around as their father is a minister, Pastor Russ as he's called. Matt and Ben released a comedy album called Songs For Giants last year which you can find at www.songsforgiants.com.
Ben is an accomplished Horse Rider who loves the wild wild west (speaking of which, Matt and Ben are distant relatives to Buffaloe Bill Cody!). Ben is an amazing drummer and spends his spare time finishing his degrees at UNO, singing angelic melodies and bringing sick animals back to health. Ben loves the outdoors and likes riding his motorcycle (along with Matt, but they don't ride on the same bike they each have their own, okay!), fishing and camping outside. Ben won many awards on Speech Teams and is an award-winning accomplished Actor in Omaha.
Ben's brother Matt is also a musician (guitar man) who has performed with Ben in front of thousands of people. An interesting fact people may not know about Matt is that he won a National Championship Medal for Bench Press Powerlifting when he was 23. Matt has degrees from UNO as well and spends his spare time recording Jingle Production for radio people across the country, producing Videos with his own Video Production business and playing far too much NCAA Football on his Xbox.
MATT AND BEN ARE JOINED BY OMAHA AUTHOR AND SPECIAL GUEST WENDY TOWNLEY!
Omaha author, blogger, and social media connoisseur Wendy Townley (www.wendywriter.com) joins brothers Matt and Ben every Saturday afternoon on 1110 KFAB. Wendy's first book, Nerdy Thirty, was published in 2010 by WriteLife. When she's not on the AM airwaves or spending hours on Facebook and Twitter, Wendy is becoming a better cook with each and every meal. She also teaches part-time for the UNO School of Communication.
MATT AND BEN ALSO HOST AN AFTERNOON SHOW WEEKDAY AFTERNOONS ON TWISTER 93.3, OMAHA'S 'NEW' COUNTRY STATION.
YOU CAN LISTEN TO THEM EACH DAY FROM 3-8PM DOING SOMETHING VERY DIFFERENT THAN WHAT YOU HEAR ON KFAB, BUT THE SAME QUIRKY SENSE OF HUMOR THEY HAVE CROSSES OVER ALL RADIO AIRWAVES.
