Smith to be honored in Port Huron’s Heritage Park

Former Radio First General Manager Larry Smith will be memorialized Friday with a plaque dedication at Heritage Park on the Quay. Smith, who spent his entire 44 year radio career in Port Huron, passed away earlier this year. Smith was responsible for starting the CAPTURE program, a partnership between the Port Huron Police Department and Radio First in which cash rewards are paid for tips that lead to the arrest of a wanted suspect. Smith also helped to establish Community Roof Sit, a fundraiser involving WSAQ and the St. Clair County Child Abuse and Neglect Council. He was also a member of the Michigan Association of Broadcasters board of directors and was posthumously inducted into the Michigan Broadcasting Hall of Fame this year. The public dedication will take place Friday afternoon.
