Aaron Harper

On April 15, the Norway City Council recognized retired broadcast journalist Aaron Harper for his programming and community involvement with a resolution of appreciation.

Harper was the first employee and news director at WJNR-FM (Iron Mountain) and well known as “The First Voice of WJNR.”  Harper retired in January from WHTO-FM/WJNR-FM/WOBE-FM.

According to an article in the Iron Mountain Daily News, Norway City Manager Ray Anderson congratulated Harper on his “well-deserved” retirement, saying the community will miss hearing his voice in the news.  Mayor Candy Brew added, “He did a fine job for many years.  I hope he has a great retirement.”

Also planned is an Aaron Harper Day celebration on Sunday, April 28, at the Dickinson County Fairgrounds in Norway.
