Nominate a Hometown Hero!


(WKRG) — At the beginning of the pandemic, WKRG News 5 honored Hometown Heroes and featured people in our area on the front lines, kicking the local response into gear as we slowly got used to life as we now know it.

Almost a year into COVID-19, we see that those frontline workers are being hit even harder, as additional waves of the coronavirus hit the world.

WKRG News 5 is bringing back Hometown Heroes. We would really like to talk with the person you nominate, and give them recognition…right here on The 4 on 5!

If you have a Hometown Here that is serving the community during the pandemic, please send an email to with the reason for your nomination, a photo, and contact information for both you and your hero.

We all want to thank them for putting their health on the line for ours each day.
