Tom Lewis is very rude, and only hires one type of person. Just look at their current slate of reporters which are all female and you’ll see what I mean. He constantly puts people down, gossips and creates rumors/drama about the reporters. He’s constantly in a bad mood on the edge of losing it on people. Extremely hostile work environment, with daily verbal harassment, but people who work under him are too scared to speak up because the retaliation would be way worse. More then 5 people left their contracts early in two years under him.

You won’t hear from Tom unless you make a mistake and he does not give feedback. But Tom makes fun of other reporters and imitates them. His nickname is Tom Lucifer for a reason. He screams at everyone but especially reporters. I tried to avoid him as much as possible. The man is downright scary. [continued below]....

..... He also has zero clue how to run a news station.

He does not watch a single newscast, never gives feedback, yells if you make a mistake. Guy would force reporters to do stories when his friends when they open a new business or store. Their pandering and relationship with the police is disgusting. They have a weekly segment praising a police officer just for doing their job. I honestly felt I was becoming a worse journalist there and only served to fix mistakes. Avoid at all costs this toxic s**t station. Also if you are a male reporter don’t even bother applying. He only hires hot girls.

He also dated and had intercouse with his hot, attractive female reporters on a regular daily basis. Tom is evil and demeaning towards women, minorities, and everyone. Tom Lewis will NOT hire a male reporter. He will only hire attractive female reporters. There hasn’t been a male reporter in years. Tom literally hired his friend's kid to be the evening news producer because they needed a job. They had no news qualifications.

Tom is mean every day and swears at people, the public, and everyone in Panama City. He is a bad person.
