“It’s retirement from full-time work, but I still intend to be active in the business.” So says Barry Banker who has worked in some capacity for WKHB (and its predecessor WHJB-AM) 620 since the mid-1960s. Banker will scale back his duties on July 24 in order to spend more time with his family and “not be committed to a schedule”. He intends to maintain a few duties including the public affairs program, “A Closer Look” which he has hosted for several years and airs on all three of Broadcast Communications’ North Versailles-based stations. “I may do some sales too, but these are things yet to be worked out,” he said. Over the years, Banker has also been a part of 620’s sister stations, including the original incarnation of WHJB-FM (107.1) – later WOKU and WSSZ. More recently he has also been heard on WKFB-AM (770) and WKVE-FM (103.1). He also worked part-time for WKTQ-AM (1320) in the years that it was top-40 “13-Q” (now WJAS).
