Karen Thomas (’90) and Gregory Potter Jr. (’95, ‘97) will be the latest inductees into the WGLS-FM Hall of Fame at Rowan Radio’s annual banquet on Thursday, April 25 at Scotland Run Golf Club in Williamstown, New Jersey.
Before starting a television career in news reporting with ABC affiliate WHTM in Harrisburg, PA and then moving to FOX 29 in Philadelphia, Thomas brought her enthusiasm and dedication to WGLS-FM.
The Class of ’90 graduate from then-Glassboro State College became a fixture on WGLS-FM in the late 80s while serving as the news anchor for the station’s morning programming and co-hosting music and talk shows.
An award-winning journalist and certified Broadcast Meteorologist, not only is Thomas active in the Philadelphia broadcasting scene but she also shares her vast experience with students.
Currently, she is a Communications and Media Arts instructor at Neumann University.
Meanwhile, Potter was the host and producer of WGLS public affairs program “Campus Call-In” from 1991 to ‘95 along with several shows including an alternative rock program called “The Edge of Reality.”
After earning a master’s degree in public relations from Rowan University in 1997, Potter taught radio broadcasting courses at Cabrini College and Villanova University.
Following his days as a college instructor and on-air talent at WVLT-FM in Vineland, NJ, Potter is Assistant Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations with South Jersey Healthcare.
The WGLS-FM Hall of Fame began in 2005 and honors Glassboro State/Rowan graduates who have been long-term supporters of the station and Rowan University.
