Wade T. Oberlin

Underwriting and Marketing

Hailing from Jamestown, Ohio, Wade got his start in  broadcasting while serving with the United States Navy at the Armed Forces Network station Eagle 810 in Yokota, Japan. Broadcasting on AM radio across the Kanto Plain, listenership was shared by both American Forces and a Japanese shadow audience tuning in for American Top 40 and an insight to military operations at home and abroad.

Wade has since developed an affinity for radio, especially when it serves a community and serves-up eclectic mixes of music and news programming. This was reflected in his time spent as a volunteer and later as a volunteer coordinator for KSER in Everett, Washington, which has historic ties to KRAB Seattle, Lorenzo Milam, Pacifica and an encompassing spirit. Wade developed his own "Last Exit" program; at first a freeform variety show with local guests, and later a more straight-ahead jazz program.

Returning home in 2019, Wade is happy to bring his talents and passions to WCSU, Central State University and Greene / Montgomery County.
