Gary Lowe, the long-time sports director at WKTN, passed away on Saturday.
“The Voice of the Wildcats”, Gary Lowe was the sports director at WKTN for over three decades. A strong advocate for Hardin County, Lowe traveled the state of Ohio to bring a wide variety of sports to the listeners of 95.3 FM. A 1976 graduate of Kenton High School, Lowe was perhaps best known for his years covering the Kenton Wildcat sports program but was also a passionate supporter of all the county schools.
In addition to broadcasting state championship victories for the Kenton football team and the Upper Scioto Valley boys and girls basketball teams, Lowe covered state tournament games for Ada, Hardin Northern and Riverdale in his 30-plus years of work on WKTN.
Lowe was inducted into the Hardin County Sports Hall of Fame in 2016.
