All of us at 101.5 KNUE are proud to be part of East Texas, and we are especially proud to live in a place where we hold our military and first responders in such high regard. KNUE and Patterson UTI are proud to announce this week’s “Hometown Hero,” Captain Billy Hodge of the Longview Fire Department. Kelly Schultz nominated Billy and here's what Kelly had to say:

Billy Hodges is a Captain and paramedic for the Longview Fire department and he goes above and beyond in his line of duty.On several occasions, he has put others before himself when it came down to the line of fire. He serves the community and is a great role model for the younger generation. Among being a great asset to the Longview Fire department , he is a wonderful father to his daughter.


To show our appreciation for Billy's service and dedication to his community, he will receive a plaque courtesy of our friends at Congratulations Awards in Jacksonville. Congratulations has awards, trophies, engraving and gifts!
