Renk grew up in the suburbs of Detroit and graduated from Detroit Catholic Central High School and then attended and graduated from Central Michigan University. Renk started his working career in the banking industry in Boston, Massachusetts, a great town for a young person. That led him to a company that sold bond accounting systems to the banking industry and gave him the chance to travel and live all over the United States for eight years. After that, he got married and settled down in Philadelphia to work in a friend's business, helping drug companies deal with FDA compliance. Several years later the family moved from the Philadelphia area back to Michigan to be closer to family, and landed in Battle Creek, Michigan. That's when Renk decided to pursue his life long dream of working as a Talk Radio Host. He started out on WBCK, and added WKMI in Kalamazoo in 2011 and WJIM in Lansing in 2013.
