Please meet Aaron Thompson… also known as A Aron around the newsroom. He’s a Digital Multi-Media Journalist here at WFXR.
Aaron was born in Petersburg, Va and raised in Bedford where he still calls home. Aaron graduated from Liberty High School in 1997 and then later studied Commercial Arts at Central Virginia Community College.
He started working with WFXR in 2007 and says he’s learned quite a bit in his time here. From Production to Directing and now Photojournalism, he’s been given opportunities to excel along the way.
Aaron enjoys spending time with his wife and two fur kids. From kayaking to hiking, camping and binge watching Netflix shows… there’s so much he likes to do and learn.
Most of all he really enjoys telling people’s stories, believing it’s what we’re here for. Sharing experiences.
