Gary Shores  As a kid growing up in Dearborn, Michigan, all Gary Shores did was listen to the radio. CKLW, Keener 13, WXYZ, WJBK. Homework? Forget about it! He had radio stations to listen to! (Kids, don’t do this at home, do your homework and eat your vegetables). With stations like these, Gary couldn’t help but want to get into radio. So right out of High School at age 19, he started WIDG in St. Ignace, Michigan. From there he worked at WNRS and WNRZ in Ann Arbor, WGMA in Hollywood, Florida, and his last stop was in 1975 to Toledo! Gary started working in Toledo at WTOD in July of 1975. Then, in September of 1981, K-100 was born! He’s had a lot of great times on K-100 over the years. Harvey J. Steele and Gary Shores became on-air partners in 1994, and became Toledo’s first afternoon “team”, even taking home a CMA Broadcast Award in their first year! Then in 2000, they moved to mornings and have had a blast ever since. Hard to believe they are Toledo’s longest running morning show. “We are truly the two luckiest guys in radio. Get up and have fun every day, play great music, and know we are blessed with the greatest listeners in the world.” Gary says. “Really more like the greatest friends in the world. Thank you for your great support all these years!”
