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

Originally from Thamesville, Greg has worked in local radio for more than 30 years. After a substantial career on the airwaves, 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.
