Tom Becka Becomes Ordained Minister

KFAB (1110 AM) afternoon talk show host and Omaha City Weekly columnist Tom Becka is now an ordained minister.

On his program and his Myspace.com page Tuesday, Becka revealed that he has joined the Universal Life Church and became an ordained minister.

"A friend asked me to officiate at his wedding," Becka said. "I am now legal to perform weddings in all 50 states."

I saw Tom at a wedding a few years ago and he was wearing bib overalls.

Is this standard attire for the Universal Life Church?

Wouldn't it make more sense to become a wrestling ref? I mean, seeing how much demand there is for wrestling in this state, one could probably make a lot of money doing wrestling matches then weddings.

The "Universal Life Church"? Sounds like it's sponsored by an insurance company.

What about the "Modified Whole Life Church" or the "Term Life Church"?

I like that idea. They could have President David Palmer standing out in front of the church every morning saying, "You're in good hands with our church"

6:24 PM - Is that first church led by Rev. Dave Webber?

How about the church of the 'Betes led by Wilford Brimley?

How'd you miss this one, dumb-asses:

Sheila Brummer, 4 p.m. news anchor at WOWT-6-NBC in Omaha (Market #75), is out the door after less than three years on the job, reports a tipster. The Gray-owned station is also holding tight to a strict "no-overtime" policy.

Brian said...

@10:26 AM...not that I really care all that much, since it is WOWT, but if Brummer was truly "out the door", wouldn't you think they'd take her picture/bio link down from their "Meet the Team" section of their web site?

I mean, sure, it could be that they haven't gotten around to it, but when an exit is involved, it is usually a pretty quick thing (pulling a bio - and that goes for all stations).

I don't know why I feel the need to respond to this but the only reason I became a "minister" is so I can officiate at a friends wedding. They asked me and I was honored. So I talked about it on the air and had some fun with it. It was never designed to be a radio "bit" It was a part of my life I was sharing with the audience.

Now you can continue taking anonymous cheap shots at me and others. Carry on.

Sorry Tom, I think most people didn't realize that Matt Perrault was your friend.

Tom, slow down when you type so people can understand you.

Tom, would you please officiate at our wedding, too? WE would be the ones honored.

Becka.... toughen up.

I thought my years of labeling thee BUM and sundry verbal and written cruelties would have innured thee to some of the stones and sticks thrown at thee.

Don't be a wimp, Becka.

Maybe you need some Bubba lessons to thicken thine skin.
