Tragedy has hit our community and it reaches into every corner of life in Humboldt. We know this all too well at Bolt FM.
Tyler Bieber and Brody Hinz lost their lives in the crash on Friday that killed a total of 15 people. The Humboldt Broncos were on their way to Nipawin when their bus was struck by a semi-trailer unit on highway 35 at the junction of 335.
Bolt FM is a member of Golden West Radio. Lyndon Friesen is president. He shared these words.
"It is with great sadness that we have learned both Tyler and Brody were victims of this tragedy. Tyler travelled with the team frequently as the play-by-play announcer. Having been with Golden West since the launch of Bolt FM in news and on-air, Tyler was a shining example of what it means to serve a community. Brody had recently joined our Golden West family, mentored by Tyler and the Bolt FM team.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of all the young men we lost, and our own colleagues, whose lives have been cut short by this tragic event".
