The Valley's Radio Network
MEET THE FACE BEHIND THE VOICE
Hey everyone, it’s Tim! I’m a local guy, born and raised in the Ohio Valley. I graduated from Indian Creek where I played baseball and football. I studied broadcasting at Connecticut school of broadcasting in Monroeville Pennsylvania.
I’m probably the biggest sports fan that you’ll ever meet that doesn’t have a favorite NFL team. I do love my buckeyes, penguins, and Red Sox. I don’t watch much TV outside of Sports Center and Impractical Jokers.
Outside of work I enjoy cooking, playing Xbox, drinking and working out.

I grew up in Weirton, just outside Colliers and went to Madonna
High School. I was a member of the 1987 State Champion Madonna
football team and graduated in 1988. I have a bachelor’s degree in
liberal arts, with a specialization in broadcast communications from
I’ve been working for 106.3 The River since 1991 and have enjoyed
every minute of it. In 1994 I moved from Weirton to Wintersville where
I live with my wife Shelly and our dog Stix!
I love the “Beatles,” “Rolling Stones” and “Guess Who.” Yes I’m an
old hippy! I’ve been playing drums since 1982 and play in a back porch
band “Every Monday.”
I love working for the River and enjoy the football and basketball
games I broadcast…and all the great players, coaches and parents I have
met throughout the years.
Born in the wee town of Wadsworth, Ohio. Which was, at the time, the Match Capital of the World. Every summer, during Wadsworth Week, the good citizens would erect and light the town’s giant two-story matchstick and proceed onto the Toilet Tossing Contest. Not making this up.
I’ve bounced around the country from Cleveland to LA and have even been abroad. Well, I’m still a broad...and unbelievably for many decades a broadcaster.
When I’m not working at The River, I love to cook, eat, and drink. OK, well, mostly drinking. Like my Wine.
I’m also blessed to have a wonderful (marriage second time around is definitely better) to hubby Bill Chesson.
Life is good!
