Greg Hetherington – General Manager & XS Mornings Host (5am-10am)
Greg is from Thamesville (like nearly everyone else at this radio station). He’s worked in local radio for more than 20 years. Starting when dinosaurs roamed the planet, Hetherington may have actually invented radio. 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. (It also means he’s starting to get old)

Lee Marshall – Mid-Days (10am-2pm) | Saturday (8am-2pm)
After almost 45 years in the radio/TV industry including lengthy stints in Winnipeg and Toronto he much prefers the quality of life that’s found in the smaller, more tightly-knit communities which conveniently make up the heart and soul of Chatham Kent.
Lee’s ties to the south western parts of our province include family still residing up in Lucknow and Wingham, family raised in Corunna and, in addition, Lee’s wife Lucy’s family hails mostly from the Windsor/Detroit area.
A long time member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Lee has always loved music – that’s the main reason why he decided at the age of 10 to make radio his chosen profession. He golfs, curls and enjoys most sports, boating and the great outdoors. A self-described “analog man” Lee looks forward to spending some radio time with you each and every day on CKXS FM.

Sports obsessed since an early age, Smith is a die hard fan of the Detroit Red Wings, the Toronto Blue Jays, the Toronto Raptors and the Dallas Cowboys.
Join Jay for “Weekdaze” – afternoons from 2PM-7PM – ya never quite know what to expect.

- Smith’s favourite athlete of all time is NHL Hall Of Famer, Steve Yzerman

Corey North – Evening Host | Producer
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.”
Trevor Thompson – Afternoon News Anchor (12pm-6pm)
A Cedar Springs resident, Trevor puts family and community first.
A Mohawk College Alumni, Trevor moved to Chatham-Kent in 2003 with the goal of starting a family with his wife Trish, and growing with the community. If there’s a school photo on your fridge, there’s a good chance Trish took it!
Trevor holds down the fort in the newsroom three days a week and has always lived for news and weather. Happy to die for them, too. Especially the weather. Trevor doesn’t “sport” in any way, but has been seen taking in the occasional PJHL game.
In his free time his favorite thing is to spend time with Trish and the kids, Ian and Zoë. If there’s a canoe, motorcycle or a Buick Riviera involved, all the better.

Moréna joined the CKXS Newsroom in the spring of 2016.
