Barth's career began as a switchboard operator/runner at WNDU South Bend when he was a teenager.
"I've had the privilege of working with a great team here at WFXG and for Raycom while here in Augusta for the past nine years," he says. "I have also had the good fortune of working with talented colleagues and friends all over the country while working for a number of great broadcasting companies."
Earlier career stints also include The Donahue Show and general manager jobs at KREM Spokane and KGPE Fresno.
"Barry has worked tirelessly on behalf of Raycom and for the people of the greater Augusta area," said Leon Long, senior vice president/television, Raycom Media. "We wish him well as he begins the next chapter in his life."
One of Barth's sons, Kevin, is the director of sales at WCBS New York.
Barth plans to travel with his wife Barbara upon his retirement.
