celebrating hometown heroes 16X9

Do you know a doctor, nurse, EMT, or other medical professional for their courageous, selfless fight against Covid-19? We want to hear about them!

News 9 and Midwest Communications are teaming up to honor a Hometown Hero.

Nominate someone you know battling on the front lines, caring for or helping those in need. Please enter their name, occupation, and a reason why they’re a Hero.

Every week we’ll select one of the nominees and they’ll receive an incredible prize package from area local businesses. Plus, each winner will be announced Friday mornings starting April 17th during Wake-UP Wisconsin and on the Midwest Communications radio stations listed below.  While only one nominee will be selected every week, Midwest Communications and News 9 would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every medical worker on the front lines during this pandemic!
