Welsh radio presenter and stadium announcer Andrew Tommo Thomas has died suddenly.

Tommo has worked at the BBC and Nation Broadcasting stations, with spells at BBC Radio Cymru, Radio Ceredigion, Radio Carmarthenshire, Radio Pembrokeshire, Bridge FM and Nation Radio.

He was also a stadium announcer at Wales’ home football matches and at Parc y Scarlets rugby ground in Llanelli.

The club announced the sad news on Tuesday evening, saying: “We are devastated to hear that the voice of Parc y Scarlets, Andrew ‘Tommo’ Thomas, has passed away suddenly. Tommo was a hugely popular figure as the Parc y Scarlets match-day announcer, a passionate Scarlets fan who brought his huge character and energy to every match.

“Tommo loved the Scarlets and put his heart and soul into his role. He was much loved by supporters, players and staff.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Donna and son Cian at this sad time.”

He was due to start a new show at Radio Carmarthenshire and Radio Pembrokeshire this week, having tweeted the news just yesterday.
