Hot AC KPLZ-FM (STAR 101.5)/Seattle is celebrating National Nurses Appreciation Day by honoring one local nurse every hour on Wednesday, May 6. For the past week, listeners were encouraged to nominate a deserving nurse in our area, someone who goes above and beyond. Thirteen nominees where randomly drawn on Wednesday morning.

STAR 101.5 afternoon host and Program Director Kent Phillips called the nominators to get the stories about the nominees. The audio will be turned into a :60 vignette to honor each winning nurse. One vignette will run each hour on STAR 101.5 between 6am and 7pm on National Nurses Appreciation Day, plus they will be featured on STAR 101.5's social media platforms.

Phillips commented, "STAR 101.5 wanted to do something special to honor those on the frontline and with so many nurses that listen, it made sense to honor them every hour."

Each winning nurse will receive a one night at a local StayPineapple Hotels property and a gift card to Mama Stortini's Restaurant and Bar for a complimentary meal.
