Gries saw it all as WTVG engineer

During Barry Gries’ career in local television, audio signals went from mono, to stereo, to surround sound; news clips went from being live, to film, to Beta, to video server, and commercials also made the transition from being live, to tape, to server.

Gries, of rural Gibsonburg, retired April 22 after nearly 45 years with WSPD/WTVG – a span that saw him start as a transmitter engineer and become the station’s chief engineer.

Much of his first 20 years was spent working shifts at the 900-plus-foot transmission tower near the corner of BayShore and Stadium roads in Oregon.
