At WJON, we're proud of the local businesses that do business in our community. Frequently, there's more to a business than just what you hear in a 30 or 60 second commercial. Which is why we offer and expanded peek inside local businesses with the Business Spotlight.

We bring the business owners on with us and talk about the history, the intricacies and services they offer. We also try to pass on the wealth of knowledge the owners have acquired over the years.

In many cases these are people you know casually, or you have been a loyal customer, but never had the chance to ask the owners about the whole business.

The Business Spotlight offers you a chance to get to know them better. You can listen on air for them or return here periodically to catch up on the podcasts we publish.

This week we featured Companions Animal Hospital, and my special guest was Dr. Nancy Altena. We talked about preventive care for your animals and focused some time on pet obesity.
