Thomas Robertson

Assistant Editor

Thomas Robertson is a journalist who believes in the power of diligent and balanced reporting in communities of all sizes.

After graduating in 2019 from James Madison University, where he worked as a reporter and news editor for the school’s newspaper, Thomas moved away from Virginia for the first time in his life to cover the local government beat for a small daily newspaper in Zanesville, Ohio. There, he covered government, crime, business, arts and everything in between and saw how a few dedicated journalists could impact a community.

Thomas came to WTOP to have the same impact on a larger scale — being closer to his hometown and family in Lynchburg, Virginia, was an added bonus.

When he’s not in the newsroom, Thomas can be found on a disc golf course, listening to music or cheering on his beloved Washington Capitals.
