Gary Petricola


President and CEO

Since its inception in 1950, WJER has been lead by only two owners, one of whom is Gary A. Petricola. Since 1977, Gary has been deeply involved in community activities of all kinds...too many to list here! Gary is proud of his staff here at WJER, and of their involvement in the community as well. He says it's an honor to own and operate an independent radio station in the age of corporate radio. WJER is unique with its historic ties to Tuscarawas County, having been started by Agnes Reeves Greer, and named for her father, W/Jeremiah E. Reeves.Gary resides in Dover.
