While attending Texas A&M University, he served as the #1 rated night jock in Bryan-College Station on The Rock Station KTSR 92 under the name “Tommy Sledge.” In 1999, Troy made his way to Top 40 radio powerhouse, 106.1 KISS-FM, where he was named in a list of “Ones To Watch” by Billboard Magazine.

In 2007, Troy left KKITM to take a position with CBS Radio Dallas and in 2009 started working as a Producer for 105.3 THE FAN. Today, Troy is the Producer/On-Air Personality for New School with Shan and RJ and plays an active on-air role with various segments including “What’s Trending in DFW,” “Yo!
