A Sad Loss To Cheyenne and Radio [VIDEO]

We learned yesterday of the sudden passing of of our long-time friend, avid supporter of Cheyenne and Wyoming, and legend in the broadcast industry, Tom Bauman.

Tom came to Cheyenne over 40 years ago and built and operated KRAE radio until just a few years ago, but  Tom soon came to work on our sister station KGAB with an idea to get back in the saddle. Tom has been the Saturday morning host there of Tom’s View and often talked about those issues and people most influencing the community. He was with us even this past Saturday as he recovered from recent surgery.

Tom Bauman will be missed by all of us who knew him on the air and across the Cheyenne comunity, and out thoughts and prayers are with his family. God Bless you, Tom. Your voice and influence will long be remembered.

Tom Bauman is an institution in his own right in Cheyenne radio. A founding member of the Laramie Country Community College (LCCC) Board in 1968, Bauman has served in every office on the board. He has also served on as many as 50 community projects and events such as Cheyenne Frontier Days, the F.E. Warren Air Force Base Civilian Advisory Council, and has been a member of the Kiwanis for 36 years. He has owned and operated radio stations in Cheyenne since 1962.

Services are scheduled for Saturday, August 18, at Our Savior Lutheran Church.

Last month, Cheyenne Mayor Rick Kaysen proclaimed July 19 as Tom Bauman Day and the road around the north parking lot of LCCC was named Tom Bauman Loop Road.

Bauman owned 1480 KRAE since the early 60′s and was still broadcasting ‘Tom’s View’ each Saturday morning on 650 KGAB.
