Thanks to those who supported Eric Wilson

It is my belief, when I share my bad news, I should follow up with the good news when it arrives. My husband, Eric Wilson, has accepted a job with Rock Valley College. It is a community institution that he treasures. It will be a great fit for him, and he will do a terrific job.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the literally thousands of people who have wrapped their arms around our family since Eric was unexpectedly terminated from WREX. We have been blessed with the kindness of our community at every turn. Losing a job certainly isn’t the worst that has ever happened to us, but it was the most public. And in a very public way, I would like to thank every “angel” God sent our way with a kind word, hug, cup of coffee, etc., etc., etc. And, to all those viewers who felt Eric was a “classy” man of integrity, you were right. It’s how a person conducts him or herself in the trials and tribulations of life that shows who they truly are. Eric is all of that and more. I am proud to call him my husband.
