Tommy Thompson receives WBA Distinguished Service Award

By Paul Schmitt

 

Former Governor and U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson will be presented with the first-ever Wisconsin Broadcasters Association’s Distinguished Service Award.  Nominated by Nicolet Broadcasting President and former WBA Board Chair Roger Utnehmer, Thompson will receive the Distinguished Service Award in January at the WBA Winter Conference.  Utnehmer says Thompson was always fair and accessible to the media.

 

 

 

 

 

Utnehmer adds that Thompson reached across the political aisle to get things done in Wisconsin.

 

 

 

 

Thompson served as Governor of Wisconsin from 1987 to 2001 and as the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services from 2001-2005 under George W. Bush.
