Tom Hawley can claim to be a Las Vegas native, having been born in Las Vegas, New Mexico. But he started spending summers in Las Vegas, Nevada at age 5, and has spent most of his life in Southern Nevada.  Tom is a graduate of Rancho High School in North Las Vegas, and has a B.A. in Communication Studies from UNLV.


After a few radio and TV jobs in the mid-80s, Tom has been reporting traffic from a helicopter and the studio since 1988, and joined the Channel-3 family full-time in 1995.  In addition to covering current traffic conditions, Tom does feature reporting on transportation issues.  He also covers outdoor adventures, and local history with the weekly "Video Vault".

The highpoints of Tom's career thus far, are experiences in Europe as a two-time fellow with the RIAS-Berlin German American Journalist Exchange Program.  In 2002 he was inducted into the Nevada Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame.

Outside the workplace, Tom's two passions are music and outdoor adventures.  These days he plays electric and upright bass with the "Slim Henry & the Good 'Uns" blues band.  Tom's hiked the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro and zip-lined the rain forest in Costa Rica.  You can often find him going for the peak of a local mountain on the weekends.
