Cranford’s Tom Kaminski: WCBS Newsradio 880 Helicopter Traffic Reporter (Part 1)

No matter where you work, you probably don’t enjoy the view Cranford resident Tom Kaminski has from his “desk.”  Tom is the veteran helicopter traffic reporter for WCBS Newsradio 880 and he gets to see Cranford, and the entire tri-state region, from a vantage point few can appreciate.  Cranford Radio had a chance to sit down with Tom at the studios of WMSC at Montclair State University to talk about his career as a traffic reporter.
