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 is proud to announce this week's “Hometown Hero,” Longview Firefighter Steve Denfield. Nominated Bby Kenneth Bragsley, here's what Kenneth had to say about Steve:

Steve is always there when you need him and he has never met a stranger. Steve is a faithful Christian and family man. He has worked for Chamipon EMS in White Oak and as an oilfield welder before becoming a firefighter with the Longview Fire Department. This man is a true hero.


To show our appreciation for Steve's dedication to his community, Steve will receive a plaque courtesy of Congratulations Awards in Jacksonville.

Thank you for your service, Steve!
