Roster

Greg Hetherington – General Manager & XS Mornings Host (5AM-10AM)

Greg is originally from Thamesville (like nearly everyone else at this radio station). He’s worked in local radio for more than 30 years. After a substantial career in local radio, Greg was given the opportunity to branch out and open up a new station in Wallaceburg, taking to the air in October of 2009.

“It was a great fit, to live and work in a tight knit community like Wallaceburg. Being active in the community is what I do well. I always thought that getting involved was something that you didn’t need a lot to talent to do, so doing that, was easy. The more you get involved in a community, the more you want to help. I hope that we at CKXS can do great things in the Wallaceburg area.”

Greg is married to a woman (Kelly) that loves radio, loves meeting people, and is the backbone of this radio venture. “When I asked her if she wanted to move to Wallaceburg and be a part of the community, Kelly jumped in feet first. It says a lot about who she is. We love Wallaceburg. Love the downtown, and most importantly, love the people. There are so many good people in this area. We plan on telling their story on a regular basis on the morning show on CKXS.”

Climb out of bed with the help of Greg Hetherington, up first at 5 AM. It’s a timeless, local tradition.

Corey North – Evening Host | Producer

Corey North comes from the magical land of Thamesville, Ontario. He went to Canadore College for Radio and Broadcasting in a city true to his name – North Bay, Ontario.

Looking to find that first step into the wonderful world of radio, he began to volunteer his time for CKXS. Since August 2010, Corey has been a part of the team, behind the wheel of the Summer Cruiser and manning the battleship in studio while delivering the quirky effects that are Corey North every weekend.

Corey’s talents include reciting movie quotes from memory, acting as a professional amateur busker and eating an entire bag of Fritos in one sitting (that last one won’t go on the internet, right?).

“I really enjoy being a part of the CKXS team. I’ve had a amazing time here and I’ve met so many great people. CKXS has allowed me to develop the skills I learned in College and to interact with our great community.”
