Today's headlines:

  • the QC Salvation Army will emphasize prevention in its programs for homeless families,
  • the president of WIU is no longer a candidate for another job,
  • and a nationwide Click It or Ticket campaign begins.

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
