Reason #27: The Founders

You can't build an institution without a strong foundation. The values, standards, and principles that WNIJ's employees exemplified in 1991 are the same that today's employees uphold. Sure, a lot has changed in the industry -- and in society -- but WNIJ's goal has always been and always will be to inform, enrich, and inspire our listeners. 

Former WNIJ news director Lester Graham joins us for today's reason to love the station -- the people who built it, with a special tip-of-the-hat to former general manager Tim Emmons.
