Eric Wilson made this post on his social networking site,and we wanted to share it.
As you know, Eric Wilson from WREX was recently let go. The circumstances are still unknown. Eric will be deeply missed by many. It was a pleasure watching your work. You have great talent and a great personality. You will be missed.
Eric’s Response on his social networking site a little bit ago:
I apologize for not responding here sooner. I’ve tried to personally answer every comment, but it’s just physically impossible. Between Facebook posts and messages, emails, text messages and phone calls, it’s hard to keep up. The response has been unexpected, overwhelming, and humbling. I really needed some time to digest the last several days or so.
While I will not go into detail about what happened, I can say it was not my choice. However, I believe this change in my life may work out for the best for me, my family, and particularly my health.
I’m not from Rockford, but I’ve lived here for 20 years. It’s home now. I’ve made a lot of friends over those 2 decades. I’ve sort of grown up on TV and shared many life moments there: my marriage, the birth of my daughter, earning my pilot’s certificate. My family and I are grateful for the opportunity this position gave for us to bring attention to people, causes, and organizations that make a positive difference in the lives of many people in our community.
My biggest disappointment is not being able to say a proper goodbye. So, Thank You for the support, the loyalty, the kind words, and mostly the trust you put in me to allow me into your home to deliver the news accurately and fairly with integrity.
Consider this my final…”Stay Safe”
There has been a face book page that was recently started by someone. It is called “We Stand With Eric Wilson” ~ https://www.facebook.com/EricWRocks
