Caron is a graduate of Lewiston High School in Maine and Saint Michael's College in Vermont, where he majored in journalism.

After graduating, Caron took a job with a small newspaper in Vermont covering the Vermont Reds, Cincinnati's AA affiliate. He quickly left that job to take a job with WPTZ-TV in Plattsburgh, New York, where he covered the Montreal Canadiens and Montreal Expos. He later held a sports anchor job at WNNE-TV in Hanover, New Hampshire.

In 1988, he took a sports anchor job at WGME-TV in Portland, Maine, where he stayed for five years. In addition to his anchor duties, he hosted a weekly ski segment and produced a number of half-hour sports specials and hosted college and pro hockey broadcasts there.

In 1993, he left WGME-TV to become the inaugural play-by-play announcer of the Portland Pirates, the AHL affiliate of the Washington Capitals. The Pirates won the Calder Cup that first year, and Caron hosted and produced the playoff highlight video "No One Left to Beat." Caron also hosted a weekly hockey feature on WPXT-TV in Portland. Caron also provided play-by-play coverage for the New England Stingers of Roller Hockey International.


Caron joined NESN in 1995, and has been with the network ever since. His first job for the network was hosting the sports magazine Front Row. He later served as the station's Boston Bruins studio host and Red Sox field reporter, and also did play-by-play coverage for the Providence Bruins and Pawtucket Red Sox, as well as college basketball and college hockey (including the Beanpot).

Caron currently hosts the New England Sports Network's (NESN) Red Sox coverage, including the Red Sox pre- and postgame shows. During the baseball off-season, he serves as the play-by-play of the Beanpot as well as the network's Hockey East broadcasts.

Caron writes a weekly sports column for the Tuesday edition of the Portland Press Herald, mostly pertaining to the Red Sox, Bruins, and New England Patriots.[needs update]

He also makes frequent guest appearances on sports talk radio station WEEI-FM to discuss the Boston Red Sox, and makes weekly appearances on 102.9 WBLM-FM ("The Blimp") and 101.3 WCPV-FM ("The Game") in Burlington, Vermont.[1][2][3][4][needs update]

While reporting during a March 2023 spring training game for the Boston Red Sox, on NESN, a cat ran onto the field and into the home team dugout, where it jumped at him. [5]

Personal life

Caron lives in Framingham, Massachusetts with his wife Kelley and their two sons Jack and Robbie.

He is often called "TC" by his NESN co-workers.


Caron has won 12 New England Emmy Awards, a New York State Broadcasters Award, two James Ellery Awards (given for excellence in covering the American Hockey League), the ECAC Media Award. On March 29, 2014, Caron was inducted into the Portland Pirates Hall of Fame along with former Bruins goaltender Byron Dafoe, former Washington Capitals goaltender Olaf Kolzig, and Nashville Predators coach Barry Trotz.[6] On October 2, 2018, Tom was the 27th recipient of the Hockey East Joe Concannon Media Award, given annually to the media member who demonstrates continued excellence in promoting and advancing the Hockey East conference in the media. On September 26, 2021 Caron was inducted into the Maine Sports Hall of Fame.
