ABOUT

 

WNHO serves the Northwest Ohio region of Defiance, Paulding, Henry, Williams and Fulton counties.  While these counties are part of either the Fort Wayne or Toledo TV markets, WNHO is local, starting with its broadcast facility near Sherwood, Ohio. WNHO features local sports, community news, local events and Sunday preaching and teaching. In short, WNHO showcases all the great things that make life terrific in Northwest Ohio!

 

In October, 2018, American Christian Television Services, Inc (ACTS) acquired WDFM-LP from IHeartMedia. ACTS also owns WTLW in Lima and its sister channel WOSN (West Ohio Sports Network). With the transfer, the station has changed its call letters to WNHO.

 

WTLW TV is a 501c3 ministry supported by the generous donations of our viewers and by sponsorships provided by community-minded local businesses.

MEET THE GENERAL MANAGER

In the 1990’s, Ken started as a recording engineer and worked with many independent musical artists and worship teams in Northwest Ohio.  He began working with the TV station that would eventually become WNHO on a part-time basis in 2005.  Over the next several years, Ken learned the video skills necessary to air local parades, sporting events, and community interest programming in an effort to grow the local audience. 

Ken’s duties with WNHO include program scheduling, recording, and editing many of the local productions that are aired on the station.  He is also responsible for the community bulletin board and is the main local contact for WNHO, TV26, that serves the five county Northwest Ohio region.

Ken lives in Bryan, Ohio with his wife Leisa.  They have been married for over 30 years and have two grown children; Veronica, who is pursuing her studies in Opera performance in New York City, and Nicholas, who is currently attending Miami University in Oxford.  A “fun fact” about Ken is that he, along with his wife and sister-in-law, appeared on WTLW in the 90’s as a singing Gospel trio called “The Stovers.”

Ken is thrilled to be working alongside the WTLW staff.  He said, “We all share the common goal of making a positive influence in our community through this unique broadcast platform.  For me, it doesn’t get any better than this.” 

Ken Richer is the General Manager of WTLW’s newest broadcast affiliate, WNHO in Defiance, Ohio.
