With the station since January of 2004, I am a graduate of Versailles High School and Bowling Green State University. My broadcasting career included sports broadcasting at Bowling Green State University and now at WTGR. My duties include the sales, morning show, afternoon’s 1-3, as well as play-by play of high school sports on WTGR. I live in Versailles with my wife: Kim, married 8-26-06; six children: Zachary (14), Lydia (12), Audrey (9), Clara (8), Thomas (4) & George (born Feb. 2021). I enjoy cheering for the Browns, Reds, & Buckeyes! For advertising information or other questions, please email me.

Hi everyone! I’m Sharon Shelley…I have the pleasure of being with you weekdays 3-8 and also on the weekend for Country Lanes Saturday 7a-10a & Sunday Morning Inspiration 7-Noon. I love spending time with all of you and thank you so much for listening. Pictured here with my very own fan club! God has blessed me with such a wonderful family & I have found the joy of being a Mom has expanded into Mother-in-law and a Grandmother! For those of you who are Grandparents, you know what I mean when I say, “there’s nothing like hearing that sweet voice say Grandma or Grandpa” (in my case, Mim Mim) You truly are an inspiration each and every day and I thank you so much for taking your time to spend some time with me! God Bless!
