After graduation he worked as a reporter and anchor for various news stations in the Midwest, even winning a Regional Emmy Award.

He launched JohnTom’s Barbecue Sauce with two partners, inspired by his grandfather’s secret sauce recipe. Lathay moved his family back to his hometown of Muncie, Indiana, and started the business while also working for the Muncie Star Press. In February 2014, he decided to take JohnTom’s full-time!
