Hometown Hero

Hometown Hero

We know the most ridiculous facts about our favorite athletes, singers and celebrities — but not much about the people who are giving us the freedom to enjoy such luxuries. So WYRK is giving the soldiers who are currently fighting or have fought in the past some recognition by choosing a new Hometown Hero each Friday and featuring them here on WYRK.com. They also receive an on-air thank you, and the first song of Noon Tunes is dedicated to them as well.
