Herman Towe – Racer of The Chocolate Rocket/Sports Producer at NBC News Channel

Herman Towe

Herman Towe was born March 20th, 1968, and he was raised in Plymouth, North Carolina where, in 1986, he graduated from Plymouth High School. He went on to East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina (www.ecu.com) where, in 1991, he graduated from college. During college, Herman played the drums in the East Carolina University Marching Pirates, the University’s marching band. Ironically, Herman went to college with one of my former bosses at NASCAR Media Group (www.nascar.com). Herman is married to Stacie Towe who owns ToweBella (www.towebella.com) – a Charlotte, North Carolina hair salon. Herman, Stacie, and their son all live in the Charlotte, North Carolina area. Herman will be 46 years old on his next birthday.

Herman and I worked together at WCNC (www.wcnc.com), the NBC affiliate in Charlotte, NC, where he was one of the Sports Producers, and I was a Video Editor. He also races cars, and he calls himself “The Chocolate Rocket.” His Twitter handle is @ChocRocket.

Herman’s career background includes:

WPEG (On-Air Personality and Continuity Director – 1992 to 1995), WCNC (Sports Producer/Photographer – 1995 to 2011), and NBC News Channel (Sports Producer/Photographer – 2011 to present)

Since I included a picture of Herman when he was about two or three years old, he grew up to look like this:
