USP Mourns Death of Local Broadcaster

Dean Johnson Union Street Players is grieved to learn of the death of former local broadcaster, Dean Johnson. In his tenure as Pella News Director for KNIA/KRLS Radio, Johnson proved to be a huge supporter of local arts and USP. Johnson actively sought to promote USP through his noon "Let's Talk Pella" radio show. Dean was also a regular audience member.

Johnson was killed when he lost control of his car on Highway 61 near Red Wing, Minnesota. He had recently left his position at KNIA/KRLS to return to Wisconsin and be closer to family.

USP extends our sincere condolences to Dean's family and to his friends and co-workers at KNIA/KRLS.
