Ken Griner is now in his second stint at WTOC, coming home to his native Savannah, after fifteen years in Greenville, South Carolina. With nearly 30 years in television, he's covered just about every sporting event: World Series, The Masters, U.S. Open, Daytona 500, The College World Series and fourteen bowl games. Most of his time has been spent covering sports on the college and high school level, with a lot of emphasis The SEC, ACC, Sun Belt and SOCON.
During his career, Ken has won numerous awards for his work, including coverage of The RBC Heritage Classic, high school sports, and Georgia Southern football. As a native of Savannah, Ken brings insight to local sports powers and traditions, and his knowledge comes from both sides of the microphone, as a quarterback for a state championship team in high school football, and as a starting first baseman for the University Of Georgia, where he also earned his degree.
While away from work, Ken enjoys spending most of his time on local beaches, on the golf course or running in “the big park.”
Whether you’re walking in the parade or watching the floats roll by with the family in one of Savannah’s downtown squares for St. Patrick’s Day, there are some undeniable fashion do’s and don’ts that will seperate a true Irish Savanniahan from the tourist that comes down for the holiday weekend.
The “Fab Four,” or in this case John Lennon and George Harrison, were eating late night at Johnnie Ganem’s. They were on the way to Jacksonville when the plane had engine trouble and had to land at Hunter Army Airfield.
Hilton Head High School Head Coach B.J. Payne has been in some tough games, against great opponents, but there is a good chance that in his seven years with the Seahawks, the game this past Friday Night was his most difficult to stay focused. His Seahawks faced Savannah High at Hilton Head. He lost his mom Wednesday to a long illness, and the funeral was Friday Morning.
