Our dear friend and colleague Gregg Scharnau passed away Tuesday morning December 20th following a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

"Shark" was a Cedar Rapids radio fixture for 18 years and served 14 years as KRNA Program Director before his illness forced an early retirement in July.

A special memorial fund has been established in his children's names ("Dylan, Lia, Henry, and Josephine Scharnau's Education Fund") at Hills Bank in Marion, Iowa. We hope you will make a contribution to this fund in his memory.

There will be a Celebration of Life on Wednesday December 28th at 7:00 p.m. at Theater Cedar Rapids, 102 3rd St. SE. for family, friends and listeners to gather, honor and remember Gregg. Everyone is welcome, and we hope to see you there.

And to remind you what a funny, charming and crazy guy he was, we are sharing some of his greatest moments during SHARK WEEK with another SHARK BITE.
