Hulvey named First Citizen

DANVILLE — One of Danville’s biggest ambassadors has been named the 77th annual AMBUCS First Citizen.

Michael Hulvey, general manager of Neuhoff Communications Danville, which includes WDAN, WDNL and WRHK, was named Wednesday as this year’s recipient.

Hulvey was cited for his community involvement, which included president of the Danville Area Convention and Visitors’ Bureau, chairman of the Vermilion Advantage Board, associate tournament director for the National Junior College Athletic Association Division II Men’s Basketball Tournament, chair of the community relations committee for the Provena Foundation Board and a member of the Danville District 118 Foundation Board, District 118 Track Committee, Danville Area Community College Readers Program and the Illinois Basketball Hall of Fame board of directors.

Mayor Scott Eisenhauer — who also does radio play-by-play — praised Hulvey for the creation of the sports broadcasting camp for kids each summer, giving youngsters a chance to learn the craft of play-by-play.

“It was through this camp that he gave R.J. Crace, a student at the Indiana School for the Blind, the opportunity to enter the craft he had so long admired,” Eisenhauer said. “Mike helped RJ ‘open his eyes’ to a career that many felt impossible for a blind man to find success.”

Michelle Campbell, director of sales at Neuhoff Communications Danville said Hulvey is willing to serve this community in every way possible.

“Michael is a great ambassador for Danville, locally and nationally,” she said. “His involvement with the International Idea Bank Organization allowed this community to serve as a host to a convention in the fall of 2006 that introduced over 150 to our community. In addition to this, his service on the Radio Advertising Bureau’s small market radio advisory committee and planning committee has made a name for Danville on the map.”

Jeanie Cooke, executive director of the Danville Area Convention and Visitors’ Bureau, cited Hulvey’s love for Danville.
