Meet the Author

Thomas R. Ray, III started his career with Buckley stations WDRC and WDRC-FM in Hartford, Connecticut, while a Senior in High School in 1977. He has been Chief Engineer of several stations in the Hartford area, such as WTIC AM and FM, has worked as producer/engineer for the Hartford Whalers Hockey organization, and has built numerous radio stations in the Northeast and the Caribbean. He came home to Buckley and WOR in 1997, working his way up to Vice President in 2005. He is one of the leading proponents of the HD Radio system in the United States, and has considerable experience with transmission, studio construction, and data, which culminated in the rebuilding of the WOR studio facility, which is primarily a data based facility. He converted WOR in New York City to HD Radio in 2002, and quite possibly has the most hands on experience with the hybrid AM HD Radio system in the country.
