Jim Thome’s Wife Calls Out Cleveland Radio Station for Relentless Attempt to Get Him on Air

Published on

Andrea Thome, the wife of Hall of Fame slugger Jim Thome, reached her limit with a Cleveland radio station on Friday.

During an episode of The Really Big Show on ESPN Cleveland, host Aaron Goldhammer challenged an intern to try to get Thome on the air. If he succeeded, the intern would win $100.

However, the radio station’s efforts backfired, as Andrea Thome vented on social media about the show taking the on-air bit a few steps too far by blowing up her and her son’s notifications with requests in multiple posts.

“I did not have grown men on ESPN Cleveland bullying me on International Women’s Day because I won’t interrupt my husband while he is working across the country to call in so your intern can win $100,” Andrea Thome wrote. “How about I Venmo the kid and you guys back off?”

It didn’t stop there.

“Repeatedly calling my son’s high school, too; and even his baseball coach,” she continued. “Peppering my son with multiple DMs while he is IN SCHOOL. All for what? Attention? Mission accomplished. And then light me on fire on social media for not going along with a ‘fun little bit.’ Shameful.”

The Thome family, of course, is Cleveland royalty. Jim Thome was drafted by Cleveland in 1989 and spent his first 12 seasons there, as well as a 22-game reunion in 2011.
