Corporate Support Representative Bill Braksick is a newcomer to Northern Public Radio, but a longtime listener. He discovered NPR in his early 20s, and is thrilled to be associated with public radio three decades later, drumming up underwriting support for WNIJ and WNIU. He formerly worked as a reporter and editor at several newspapers in northern Illinois and Wisconsin. Along with St. Louis Cardinals baseball, he enjoys reading, hiking and camping, where he listens to the WNIJ/WNIU mobile app. A grandfather of three, he lives in Genoa with his wife, Patty.
