KNUJ’s Hometown Hero for the month of January is 11-year-old Talia McCorquodale of Franklin. She is credited with saving her family when a fire broke out in their home last month. The fire at the McCorquodale residence started early in the morning, and was discovered by Talia, who then saved her family by remaining calm and alerting everyone else. Everyone made it out safely, including the family pets. The KNUJ Hometown Hero recognition is sponsored by KNUJ AM and FM and your New Ulm Hy-Vee. To nominate a Hometown Hero stop by the Hy-Vee customer service desk or our studios in New Ulm or Sleepy Eye, or by clicking HERE.
