Steve “Tripper” Billinger volunteers assisting on scheduling changes, reports and to ensure all your favourite County FM tracks get locked and loaded into the system for play back on air. He is also the Host of “County Party Time with The Tripper” Friday nights 10:00 PM through Saturday 2:00AM and Saturday night 8:00PM through Sunday 2:00AM.
Tripper has been coming to the County for over 20 years after returning from London, UK where he lived for 16 years. He moved a year and half ago to Old East Hill on what he is told is the “wrong side” of the bridge in Belleville.
He has spent his whole career in the creative community both here and in the UK and US, as a successful creative company co-founder, writer, producer, director and designer leading to executive roles at Microsoft, News Corp, Bell and running business, strategy and digital for the CBC. Most recently launched creative entrepreneurship programs at OCAD University and Artscape to help artists and cultural workers start and grow their businesses. His is also a Board Member with the Prince Edward County Arts Council.
He studied painting at London UK’s Slade School of Fine Art, and continues to write, paint, photograph and play guitar (badly but enthusiastically). But he considers his greatest work his lovely daughter Hannah.
