Earl Freudenberg returns to the airways on WDYN Radio Monday morning.  Mr. Freudenberg suffered a fall nearly two months ago and injured his knee, making transportation and studio work virtually impossible.  

 Due to modern technology, he has been able to do limited recorded features from his home studio, but Monday, he is back in the studio on Ellis Road in Rossville.

Fellow broadcaster Tom Hammett said, "If there was ever a natural for radio...it's Earl Freudenberg.  He has the voice, knowledge of music, love of the job and a real nose for news as a reporter." 

WDYN programming can be heard on AM 980, FM 94.9 and on the Internet at www.wdyn.com.  "Hey Earl" hosts "Sunrise" every morning from 7-9 a.m.
