Service to Community Award for Radio – Small Market

Serving the Kankakaee River Valley

WYUR-FM, WVLI-FM, WIVR-FM, WFAV-FM Bourbonnais, Ill. - Milner Media Partners






After receiving a letter from a longtime American Legion employee, Milner Media decided to do their part in saving a piece of local history. Since 1934, Bradley American Legion Post 766 has been considered a haven for veterans to recover, relax and congregate as a community. However, the building was in desperate need of repair. With a call to the local community, Milner Media and its partners solicited donations from local organizations, held benefit concerts and facilitated a raffle to raise the funds for this restoration project. With the help of the local community and partners, the Bradley American Legion can continue to provide a safe retreat for local veterans, giving them a place to call their own.
