Tom Temin has 30 years experience in journalism, mostly in technology markets.

Tom is currently the host of Federal News Radio's live morning show, the Federal Drive with Tom Temin.

He was a long-serving editor-in-chief of Government Computer News and Washington Technology magazines, both of which were regular winners of national reporting awards.

He started out at a small weekly newspaper in Peterborough, New Hampshire in 1977, after graduating from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Tom is now a communications and publishing consultant.

Before joining Federal News Radio, Tom wrote (and continues to write) a column on government IT and acquisition topics. He was a regular guest on Federal News Radio before joining the team.

When not working, Tom plays keyboard in two bands, subscribing to the late Liberace's philosophy, "I ain't good, but I got guts."

A devotee of baseball, Tom keeps scorebooks for the 25 or so games a year he manages to attend each season. To counteract the beer and peanuts from sports venues, Tom is a runner, having completed 11 marathons, including four Boston Marathons (so far).

Tom and his wife live in Rockville, Md. They have two kids as well as a black greyhound.
