In Memoriam

Trevor Griffith was a 1999 graduate of Ridgewood High School and the evening announcer for WTNS AM/FM radio stations. While in high school, Trevor began his broadcasting career in September of 1997. He worked at the station from 1997 until he died in 2022 with a short stint doing telemarketing in Massillon. Trevor was the favorite engineer of anyone who called games of athletic events over the radio. He would find a way to get it on the air no matter how new the play-by-play person was or what surprises happened at the game site. He developed technical skills way beyond what anyone expected. He was self-taught and extremely accommodating to everyone who had a need. Trevor was the “go-to” guy on the staff with any technical or personal needs.  His shoes will be difficult to fill.

Ken Smailes says farewell to WTNS

Following a career that spans three decades in print and broadcast journalism, WTNS’s Ken Smailes is transitioning from the News Director position he has held at WTNS for 25 years. He started at WTNS in 1996, becoming the longest-serving News Director at the radio station. He was previously Managing Editor at the Coshocton Tribune, worked at the Athens Messenger, and began his career as a sports writer and editor before focusing on news. Ken has also been known for this interest in history, and for the past 15 years has been a part-time pastor. As of July 1st, Ken will move into full-time ministry with the United Methodist Church.
