Tom York is an American television personality. He worked from 1957 to 1989 for WBRC-TV in Birmingham, Alabama. Tom has served in several capacities with the station. He is also best remembered for The Tom York Morning Show. The Show was the station’s primary morning show for 32 years. Fannie Flagg served as his co-host during the early 1960s.
