Rick Thomas - WFAW-WSJY Radio - Hosts a morning radio show
He has many family connections to Lake Mills through both his parents and his sister.  
His dad was a broadcaster so radio has been in his family for a long time and operated stations out of two rivers and manitowoc.
Rick got a degree in journalism from marquette and then got a job in rockford in video editing and commercial advertising.  He then transitioned into shooting video, and then writing scripts.  
Later he became a freelancer and moved his work to madison where he became involved with larger productions and more crew.  One of his clients was Blains Farm and Fleet, including writing, producing, and editing their tv and radio advertisements.  For 10 years, he was the voice of Blains Farm and Fleet.  Subway was another larger client. 
He was connected with the radio show on WFAW out of fort atkinson and was asked to host the show after the previous host retired.  The three stations in Fort were purchased by Magnum Media who own many other stations throughout the state.  
He does music, local news, and interviews on his show.
