Ed Rupp has been bringing complete, accurate and up-to-the minute traffic reports to East Tennessee for over a decade. He was born at the intersection of I-40 and I-75 back when it was called "Malfunction Junction". Mr. Rupp received his PhD (Pot HoleDetection) degree from Road Island University. The Traffic Tracker is supported by thousands of TDOT workers and hundreds of law enforcement dispatchers who maintain constant communication with him to keep East Tennesseans informed. The Traffic Tracker plays racquetball (poorly) and the saxophone (even worse)! He collects doo-wop music and Jayne Mansfield magazines.
