Ken is Music Director for Tri States Public Radio, overseeing all music programming, hosting the morning classical music program “Ovation,” and engineering recorded performances for TSPR. Ken is from Highland Park, IL, and has degrees in music and broadcasting from Western Illinois University. Ken says listening to fine arts radio and old school classical stations from Chicago in his teenage years, coupled with a few months on a glorified tin-can telephone of a radio station in an on-campus residence hall, led to his career in radio. Ken is no stranger to radio, having worked as a student staff announcer at WIUM, news director at WKAI/WLRB/WLMD in Macomb, and Program Director at Tri States Audio Information Services. When Ken is not busy with radio and music programming he enjoys helping Macomb High’s Marching Band, playing jazz, and watching his three sons discover the big, wide world.
