I'm 95.3 WBCK's Brand Manager, and Operations Manager for Townsquare Media's Battle Creek Stations and part of the 95.3 WBCK Morning Show. I've been with the station for 29 years. I'm also a professional musician, playing the trumpet and sax in the Gull Lake Jazz Orchestra, Otsego Jazz Ensemble, KCC Jazz Band, Lew Boyd Band and the Kalamazoo Big Band, (which I co-lead.) You might have seen me on stage at the Great Escape Stage Company, Marshall Civic Players, and the Battle Creek and Kalamazoo Civic Theaters

Renk is a native Detroiter, and started his working career in the banking industry in Boston, Massachusetts, a great town for a young person. That led him to a company that sold bond accounting systems to the banking industry and gave him the chance to travel all over the United States for eight years. After that, he got married and settled down to work in a friend's business, helping drug companies deal with FDA compliance. Several years later the family moved from the Philadelphia area back to Michigan to be closer to family, and landed in Battle Creek, Michigan
