KZUM 89.3 Lincoln, NE

Tom Ineck

A Lincoln native, I earned a degree in journalism at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1984. The Lincoln Journal Star employed me for 14 years, reporting on Lincoln city and county government, neighborhoods, transportation, historic preservation, the arts and dining. Later I wrote for and edited publications and managed websites for Humanities Nebraska (then known as the Nebraska Humanities Council), the Berman Music Foundation and the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia.

After serving a 25-year term as the Mayor of "NightTown" from 1993 to 2018, I stepped down for five months before getting the call to return for an afternoon jazz program. It's a jazz groove, a blues groove, a soul groove and more. It's "The Afternoon Groove." Since February 2012, I also have hosted "Jazz Currents," Saturdays 7-9 p.m. Central on NET Radio, Nebraska's NPR station.
