Tim Ewing

Co-Owner

Education: Eastern University, Philadelphia, PA

Tim’s love for radio began at an early age. In college, he majored in Youth Ministry and Radio Communications. In his freshman year of college, he had the opportunity to rebuild and re-brand his college radio station, which is still broadcasting. Following college, he became a youth director around the New Jersey region. But he didn’t feel like that was enough. He started Kindred Ministries.

Today, the Kindred Awards (part of Kindred Ministries) honors artists by giving them a platform for local artists and musicians to gain the exposure they need and deserve.

Tim has been with ATR News since October 2018. When he first joined, he served as the co-host of the Apostles That Rock Podcast. Today, he co-owns and helps to lead all our teams at ATR News.

Professional Affiliation: Kindred Ministries
