Tim Renshaw is the General Manager of WRGF 89.7 FM and GCTV Channel 19. He has been working at Greenfield-Central High School since 1997 where he built the TV and Radio stations. Tim began his radio career while he was still in high school by working weekends at WARU AM & FM in Peru, Indiana. A few months after graduating from Manchester High School he joined the U.S. Army and became a newspaper journalist and a radio / television specialist.
He served as a combat correspondent in Vietnam in 1971 and 1972. At the conclusion of his military “career” Tim went to work for WSMJ radio, which was located in Greenfield. Some of you may remember him as Jay W. Riley.
At the end of the KISS-99 Disco era Tim taught radio broadcasting at Warren Central for 5 years. Many of his former students have outstanding careers in the industry working at many of the top radio stations around the country, as well as CBS, CNN and even in Hollywood where one of his former students is the writer/producer/director of three major motions pictures as well as an ongoing TV series for the FOX Networks. Tim then worked in the commercial television field for 13 years… 10 ½ of those with Time/Warner as a programming manager and host of his own television shows, “Don’t Watch This Show”, “Community Focus” and “The Coffee Club” which ran for 987 hour-long episodes. Today, besides managing both of G-C’s stations he also teaches the “radio” portion of Greenfield’s Broadcast Communications course.
Tim has always considered himself an "original" Star Trek fan... having seen all of the episodes the first time they were aired! In the mid-70s he worked with Gene Roddenberry as the master of ceremonies for his mid-west lecture tour.
Currently, Tim's "hobby" project is the construction of a full sized shuttle craft know as "EnoS III".
