Mid-Michigan: Newsmakers Apr. 10, 2009




Central Michigan Life:

William Wayne Sanderson will be remembered by his friends and colleagues for his loyalty and upbeat attitude. "He was a friendly, easy- going guy that could be relied on," said Edward Grant, general manager of public broadcasting, who worked with Sanderson for a few years at Central Michigan University. Sanderson, 60, died on Sunday, Feb. 8 in Chesaning. Sanderson worked as a technical engineer for CMU public broadcasting on big projects like rewiring the entire broadcasting studio. Grant said they were in dire shape before Sanderson came to work for them. "He was a real craftsman," Grant said. "(And he was) extremely well versed." Tim Light has known Sanderson since 1985. They worked together at the Cars 108 radio station in Flint, where Sanderson was a chief engineer. He was a very outgoing person, Light said. When Sanderson would go visit Light and his family, he would have the back of his truck filled with fireworks and remote control cars and trucks for Light's kids. "He got along well with kids," Light said. "He was there the day after my son came home from the hospital." John Denheeten, transmission supervisor, said it will not be hard to remember Sanderson, because he worked on every part of CMU Public Broadcasting...
