Gina Collinsworth

Gina Collinsworth joined the Hometown Broadcasting team in June 2018. Gina is the producer and on-air host of the morning hometown talk show"Community Corner," here at WNXT Radio on AM 1260 and FM 95.7.

Gina's first radio show experience was at age 16, when she hosted a weekend countdown show. She created her own Top 20 Countdown show emulating her favorite media personality Casey Casem. Gina fell in love with communications work and went on to study journalism and writing, while also pursuing a music career travelling the world with her composer husband Larry Collinsworth working on cruise ships and performing.

Fast forward many years and gigs later, and in June 2018, Gina got the call to join WNXT's Community Corner Show. She has since been producing, booking, and interviewing guests every Monday through Friday. She estimates that since hosting the show, she has interviewed well over 600 guests! These amazing guests are people ranging from authors, musicians, community activists, non-profit leaders, volunteers, Hollywood stars, government officials, first responders, teachers, event coordinators, athletes, and the most exciting of all - friends! Gina cannot stress enough how big of an honor it is to continue the platform that Barb Pratt started with the purpose of sharing the good news from our community.

Gina is a public relations and content creator by trade with two degrees; her first degree is a B.A. in English from Shawnee State University, and in 2010, she returned to college to earn a Master's degree in English, Professional Writing and Editing from the University of Cincinnati.

Gina said what she likes the most about working in radio is sharing the good news and positivity that lifts people up and keeps them informed. This supports the people of our area who are doing good things and produces a snowball effect.

Her favorite radio moment was an interview with her mom Sandra Hall and longtime friend Carol Caudill. She says, "The "Moms Show" was so much fun to do! I had my Mom come in and our friend Carol Caudill come in with her to talk about family traditions, Thanksgiving Dinner and cooking tips. These two ladies are great cooks, and I think listeners enjoyed that show because we laughed a lot. I know I enjoyed it!"

Gina's favorite quote: "Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. You never fail until you stop trying." - Albert Einstein
