More: Greg Thunder grew up along the Mississippi River in Minnesota. He attended the University of Minnesota where he was on the men’s swim team and broke several Big 10 records. Not in swimming, the Big 10 was a beer joint around the corner of the dormitory and the drinking age was 18. Greg took that expertise with his throat and began a career in broadcasting that landed him gigs in New York City, Chicago, Seattle, Denver, and the Twin Cities.

Greg loves to play golf, read, travel, go to shows, and make friends with people who own swimming pools.

About his feelings for Houston, Greg says, “Of all the places I’ve lived, the most neighborly, down-to-earth, friendliest and real people live in Texas. My goal is to try and not to screw that up now that I’m here!”
