Mid-Michigan: Newsmakers April 5, 2008




Saginaw News:

Light 'em up one last time for Wally. A Saginaw radio chain is asking residents to honor the late Wally Bronner by putting their Christmas lights back up this weekend. Bronner, founder of Bronner's Christmas Wonderland in Frankenmuth, died Tuesday from cancer. He was 81. Chris Monk, Citadel Broadcasting general manager, said radio station employees felt that putting up "a string or two" of Christmas lights on porches, trees and bushes "would honor (Bronner) and be a reverent type of acknowledgment." DJs on Citadel-owned stations WHNN 96.1-FM, WILZ 104.5-FM, WIOG 102.5-FM and WKQZ 93.3-FM will encourage residents to break out their holiday best Saturday and Sunday. "We hope that a lot of people will do it," said Monk, adding that employees of the stations hit upon the low-key tribute while brainstorming ways to respectfully honor the Frankenmuth leader...
