Tom Tolbert Rumors

Affable sports talk radio host and former NBA player Tom Tolbert underwent emergency heart surgery last week to repair a thoracic aortic aneurysm, he revealed in a recorded message on his KNBR show Wednesday. While describing the scary incident, the 51-year-old Tolbert reassured his audience that he’s recovering well and hopes to return to the airwaves in two weeks for his afternoon show with co-host John Lund.
Tom Tolbert will join the Warriors’ radio broadcasts as a color analyst for a selection of games during 2013, the team announced Friday. Tolbert, who played for the Warriors from 1989-92 as part of a seven-year NBA career, will join current radio play-by-play announcer Tim Roye on KNBR 680-AM. He’ll do 10 of the team’s home games, beginning Wednesday for the Warriors’ game against the Clippers.
