A younger Joe Viechnicki broadcasts the local news from the on-air studio at KFSK Petersburg.

For over two decades Joe Viechnicki's voice on the local radio station has been an ever-present staple of the community.

He has been an up-beat, dedicated newsman, and, more than that, a dedicated community member, spending hours upon hours volunteering locally to help make Petersburg a better place.
