The official word: WNIR talk radio host and local media legend Tom Erickson passed away November 3, 2012 after a lengthy medical battle. To celebrate Tom's life, his children Heather and Erik Nagel will be hosting a Celebration of Life gathering to honor a man who loved this community and the people in it. The gathering will be held on Sunday November 18, 2012 from 3-6pm at Roses Run, 2636 North River Rd, in Stow. This
gathering will be a chance to celebrate Tom with great memories and smiles for all family, friends, and listeners.

Let us all remember Tom together with the zest for life that he enjoyed the last 40 years as a member
of our local media and community.
