ST. JOSEPH, MI – Congressman Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, issued the following statement on the passing of longtime WHTC broadcaster Juke Van Oss:

“Not only was Juke the voice of Holland, he was its heart and soul. For more than 60 years Juke brought common sense and a small town sensibility to our airwaves. I was always impressed how he was interested in all sorts of points of views, not just those that matched his own. Inducted into the Michigan Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 2009, Juke’s talents were well known state wide. Juke was a friend to all, and we’re going to miss him greatly.”
