Screen Time with Tommy McFly
Welcome to Screen Time, our series that digs into the media habits of well-known Washingtonians.
First up: Media personality Tommy McFly, who’s occasionally referred to as D.C.’s Ryan Seacrest.
- The NBC4 Scene correspondent and Tommy and Kelly Show podcast host has his finger on the pulse of the city (and, of course, his phone).
"The Office" fanatics (hello, Paige) will geek out over the fact that he’s responsible for getting the famous Froggy101 sticker on the set of the show. He started his career as a teen at the Scranton, Pennsylvania radio station.
So how does he stay connected?
☀️ First tap of the day: “Gmail. Everything, my TV job, my podcast job, my life, it all comes to the Gmail. So it’s like one big dumpster fire of things.”
📲 Most-used apps: “Used to be Twitter but now I think it’s Instagram. Because it’s just a little bit more of a happier social media place... I’ve always worked with social media so it’s never been a purely fun thing for me, it’s always had a work component.”
🎧 Listening to: Apple Music’s “Happy Hits” playlist and the "Politicology" podcast.
📚 Reading list: ”I just started Dave Grohl’s 'The Storyteller.' Get the audiobook because he reads it.”
🗄 Organization: “I layout my phone in a way that’s intentional for work.” McFly says he keeps his work apps and his personal apps on separate screens.
🔌 Tips for unplugging: McFly says he makes an effort to take his phone out of his hands and sight throughout the day to “try to be more aware of the HD screen that’s all in front of us: life.”
