Local radio host L.J. Trant accepts an award named in his honor.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Representatives of the Brown County Chapter of Quail Forever presented L.J. Trant with the chapter's first ever " L.J. Trant Community Service Award" Friday.

(KNZA)--A local radio host gains special recognition, awarded for his three decades of bringing attention to area outdoor recreation.

L.J. Trant, the host of “Outdoors in Kanzaland,” is recognized by the Brown County Chapter of Quail Forever.

Chapter President Bill Vonderschmidt on Friday presented Trant with the chapter’s first Community Service Award, named in Trant's honor. “It's in appreciation for his outstanding community service to the outdoors, to promoting the outdoors,” Vonderschmidt said when presenting the honor. “It's [presented] especially [for Trant's focus on] all the events that we are involved with, and sponsor, be it youth hunts, youth outdoor activities, workshops, etc., he's always been a big supporter.”

Trant was surprised when informed of the honor. “I'm surprised, for sure,” Trant said when presented with the honor. “I appreciate being recognized [but] it's not something I look for. I just do what I think needs to get done to help promote things people need to know about. Don't mind doing it a bit.”

“Outdoors in Kanzaland” airs Friday evenings and Saturday mornings on KNZA 103.9 FM and KMZA 92.1 FM.

Trant has hosted the program for nearly 30 years.
