Thomas Mandt

Hi, I'm Thomas and welcome to my page on The Phoenix.

I am in my 50s and live in the southern part of Germany.

My radio career began some 25 years ago, working for a local FM station in Belgium. I did a six-hour show on Saturday nights, playing 70s and 80s music. I worked for the station for about one-and-a-half years.

Later, when I moved back to my home town, I stopped radio presenting for a while but still did some voice work (jingles, commercials, promos etc) so that I wouldn't lose touch with radio entirely.


Shortly after I moved down here to Nuremberg in 1993, I started working for a local FM station as a presenter, hosting the afternoon drive time show as well as a so-called mediatainment magazine! At the end of my first year, I also became assistant manager with the director of the station. The following year, I also started working as a coach for press law, computer editing, presentation addition, I was responsible for the station branding. After the management of the station changed, they dispensed with about 15 people and I was one of them! I worked for them for a little more then five years.

Later I became involved in internet radio for UK-, US- an German-based stations. Currently, I am back with my local FM station as a coach, presenting seminars and workshops every three months or so.

O, and not to forget, from 2014 to 2016 I lived in Florida.

When I am not behind the mic, I love going out with friends, having fun, enjoying good food and love to travel. For my daytime job, I work for the public service in computer support for vision impaired and blind co-workers.

My musical taste is with 70s and 80s music but my all time favorite genre is country music.
