WCBS 880 Traffic Reporter Tom Kaminski Honored By Alma Mater

It was a special day for WCBS 880′s veteran man in the chopper, Tom Kaminski. No, it wasn’t an easy getaway on the roads. 

Kaminski was named the Allen B. Dumont Broadcaster of the Year from his alma mater, Montclair State University. As Kaminski wrote on his Facebook page, his boss, WCBS news director Tim Scheld and longtime reporter Rich Lamb were attendance, along with Tim’s wife Lyn and son JT.

Past winners include WWOR/Channel 9 anchor Brenda Blackmon, WABC/Channel 7 reporter N.J. Burkett, and Inside Edition anchor Deborah Norville.

Kaminski has been a traffic mainstay at WCBS since 1988.

He graduated from Monclair State University in 1984.
