Gary Langley

Chief Engineer

Gary Langley is a Michigan native who grew up on a horse ranch North of Detroit. He graduated from Caseville Public school in 1992 and served honorably in the USMC as a ground radio repairman from 1992-1996.  He began working in broadcast engineering as a supervising engineer for WEYI in Clio Michigan in January of 1997.  In 2000, Gary took a position with KUSA in Denver Colorado, where he was the Engineer in Charge for many live remote broadcasts, to include a weekly show with the Denver Broncos, Colorado Parade of Lights, and the Western Stock Show.  He maintained and serviced 14 remote live cameras, maintained audio and video links to the professional sporting arenas in Denver, such as Coors Field, The Pepsi Center, and the famed Mile High Stadium.  His favorite memory of Denver is being able to attend the last game at the old Mile High Stadium and seeing Jerry Rice's last game as a 49'er. He also climbed towers in the thin Colorado air to repair and install new equipment.  After his father took ill in 2001, Gary moved back to Michigan and took a position with WGTU in Traverse City to be closer to home.  Here he was instrumental in moving the entire operations and studio of their sister station WBKP TV, from Calumet to Marquette in a three day span while keeping them on the air and broadcasting. After the transition, he stayed in the Upper Peninsula as the chief engineer for WBKP.  In 2012 Gary took a position with WPBN/WGTU in Traverse City. In September of 2016 Gary made the transition from WPBN TV 7&4 to Interlochen Public Radio after nearly twenty years in television broadcast engineering.  He lives in Traverse City with his wife Tina, and together they have five children. Jesse (Brandi), Kyle, Nicholas, Jordan, Macy and one grandchild, Skylar.
