Tom Tolbert to join Warriors’ radio broadcasts
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.
Tolbert currently hosts “The Tom Tolbert Show” on KNBR, airing weekdays from 3-7 p.m. In addition to his radio work in San Francisco, Tolbert had stints with the NBA on NBC and ESPN.
During Tolbert’s three seasons with the Warriors, the team reached the NBA Playoffs two times, including a trip to the Western Conference semifinals in 1991. Overall, Tolbert played seven seasons in the NBA, averaging 6.5 points and four rebounds a game over 312 regular-season contests with the Charlotte Hornets, Orlando Magic, Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors. During the 1993-94 season, while with the Clippers, he was a teammate of current Warriors head coach Mark Jackson.
Tim Roye is currently in his 18th season of handling the play-by-play duties for all Warriors radio broadcasts. Roye also continues to host a weekly one-hour program on KNBR, “Warriors Weekly Roundtable,” as well as the Warriors’ pregame and postgame shows.
