Each Friday morning at 6:30 a.m., 98.1 KHAK's Brain & Courtlin pay tribute to an Eastern Iowa first responder. The weekly honoree receives a $25 gift card to Wild Hogs Saloon and Eatery in Walford and a $25 gift card to Honor and Respect.

Today we honor Mason Hanson, who was nominated by Ashley Courtney! The entry reads:

"Mason has such a big heart. He works at three different stations and dedicates most of his time to the communities around him. He’s the kind of person who has a lot to brag about, but is so humble. His dedication is inspiring."
