On behalf of Townsquare Media:


This past weekend, we lost a man that truly defined what it meant to be a "broadcaster" in Minnesota.

All of us who have had the opportunity to work for Andy Hilger in the past and those of us who still work in the House Andy Built owe a debt of gratitude for his passion and vision for WJON.

When many broadcasters were turning away from local and live programming on their AM stations, Andy pushed forward with his beliefs. Today, WJON is one of the strongest AM stations anywhere due in large part to the hard work of the current employees of WJON, but no doubt it was Andy's dream for WJON all along.

On behalf of all of us at Townsquare Media, we thank Andy Hilger for his commitment to our industry and celebrate his life through deep appreciation for all he did for us.
