As a child, when John Filbeck listened to the announcers on the radio stations in the car with his Dad every day, he had one thought - "That's what I want to do."
Filbeck grew up in Sapulpa, attended Sapulpa Public Schools and was an active member of the school’s band program.
After high school, he went to the University of Oklahoma, majored in journalism, and was a member of the Pride of Oklahoma Marching Band. While in college, he got his first broadcast gig, as a storm chaser for civil defense and a few area stations. After school, Filbeck returned to Tulsa to work in radio.
Filbeck is a welcomed contributor to the morning show and whenever his talents are required from reporting traffic to keeping in touch with his first radio thrill, reporting on severe weather in Oklahoma, as one of a storm chasers.
In their spare time, Filbeck and his wife Cindy, enjoy playing their instruments in their church and other area bands. They are active supporters of area high school bands and The Pride of Oklahoma. Filbeck enjoys working in his yard and gardens at home and running out into the storms whenever they arrive.
You can catch John Filbeck's traffic reports whenever you are in your car; during your drive to work, lunch time, and for your drive home with Traffic and Weather.
