Our Staff

Joe Barker, WMYW Station Manager

Over the years, Joe has been involved with many different local organizations that sometimes struggled to find affordable ways to promote themselves and upcoming events. With this in mind, Joe applied to the FCC for a license to start MY102.7 and create a local media source to promote Paulding County’s organizations, churches and charities. Joe manages the daily operations, promotions and organizes the public service announcements for which MY102.7 was created. As a fifth-generation farmer in Paulding County, Joe feels a responsibility to be a good steward of the land, as well as an active member in the community. Along with his wife Jodi, Joe looks forward to giving his children and now grandchildren an opportunity to earn a living on the family farm established in 1854.
