JT in the Morning

Better known as J.T., the morning man of WSBT, Jon Thompson helps Michiana listeners wake up every morning between 6 and 9 with a mixture of local, national and business news, weather, sports, traffic and humor. A native of West Brookfield, Mass., J.T. began his broadcasting career in Peterborough, New Hampshire in 1971. He’s also been at stations in Worcester, Mass., Colorado, and Lebanon, PA.. On December 29, 1975, he joined WSBT where he has hosted his “J.T. in the Morning Show” ever since. Jon’s marriage to his wife Marilyn lends sparkle to his already outgoing personality. Together, they enjoy a mutual love of American history, and traveling, especially to New England. An avid sports fan, Jon’s love for golf began at age six when his dad taught him the game. His interest in baseball was re-kindled several years ago – as an umpire. J.T. works an average of 100 games each season, ranging from high school to college. You can also hear Jon’s voice as the public address announcer for the University of Notre Dame Marching Band at Notre Dame football games, and as the announcer for Notre Dame men’s home basketball games.
