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,” Chief Matt York of the Dixie Fire Department. Nominated by Jeremy Pilkinton, here's what Jeremy had to say about Chief York:

Matt has been with the Dixie Fire Dept for a long time and has changed so many lives. Matt goes above and beyond everyday to do what's best for his family and fire department. He loves fire service and we all look up to Matt who is such a special person.


To show our appreciation for Chief York's dedication to his community, he will receive a plaque courtesy of Congratulations Awards in Jacksonville. Congratulations Awards can take care of all your award needs including trophies, engraving, gifts and more.
