President and General Manager
Alex is the President and General Manager of Three Rivers . He handles the day to day operations of the station. He also leads the sales and marketing team.
Alex began his radio career while a freshman at Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, when he was hired to work for WGPA "Sunny" 1100AM by Polka Hall of Fame Inductee "Jolly" Joe Timmer. He began in the sales team, where he found early success and on-air opportunities soon followed. Throughout his tenure at WGPA, Alex helped re-invigorate the legacy station as a mainstay within the community. Alex culminated his decade long run at WGPA in 2015, rising to the position of General Manager along the way.
He also brings experience from his time spent with CWTAP-TV, a locally owned cable TV channel in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania, where he served as the Director of Business Development. He was part of a management team that saw CWTAP rise from a small local outlet to a channel respected throughout the region for its live and tape delay coverage of fairs, festivals, sports, polka dances and more.
His most recent success story in radio was working with tiny WWYO 970AM in Pineville, West Virginia as a consultant for several years, where he drove sales for a morning program at the Southern Coalfields legacy station.
He's also the co-founder of the Steelworkers Polka Band.
You can find Alex on the streets, leading our sales and marketing push. He also hosts our Lunch Time Polka Party, Polka Drive at 5 and Super Saturday Polka Party.
Alex resides in the South Hills. He's a regular at Pittsburgh Riverhounds matches, enjoys sampling Pittsburgh's growing food scene, making pierogi and taking advantage of all of the great outdoor activities our region has to offer.
