VINCENNES, Ind. – Longtime Blazer 91.1 WVUB disc jockey Dave Engstrom will host his final episode of the Christian radio show “The Missing Link” on Sept. 15 after 25 years of volunteer service.

Engstrom has hosted the radio show as a volunteer every Sunday night since 1994 from 7-9 p.m. in the WVUB studio located in Davis Hall on the Vincennes University campus.

“I admire Dave for his dedication to this ministry that he has provided to our listeners every Sunday night, for giving up time with his family, for giving up time with other hobbies, and just being dedicated to come in and minister to our listeners every Sunday night with “The Missing Link” for 25 consecutive years,” said Blazer 91.1 WVUB Program Director Rebecca Clark Duckworth.

His many years of volunteer service led to his selection as a torchbearer during Indiana’s celebratory bicentennial torch relay in 2016.

Engstrom will be honored prior to his final show with a private reception at Davis Hall.
