WGVU - AM 1480 - Kentwood, MI

A Service of Grand Valley State University

A valued member of the West Michigan community and WGVU, Herta K. “Susan” Oswalt, enjoyed many interests in life from gourmet cooking, to growing herbs ... See more & vegetables, to feeding stray cats in the neighborhood. She was born in Vienna, Austria and lost her first husband in WWII. She remarried and moved to Indiana with her husband Bill and daughter Linda. The family moved to Battle Creek in 1954. Herta had another enjoyment in life, the programming on public television. Bill passed away in 2006 and Herta passed in 2008. Now through her commitment to public television and an extremely generous gift from the Herta Oswalt Trust, WGVU is establishing the Herta Oswalt WGVU Television Culinary Programming Endowment. For years to come, everyone throughout west Michigan will be able to continue enjoying the Culinary Programming on WGVU thanks in great part to the thoughtfulness and generosity of Herta. In keeping with the digital age, WGVU has created another electronic newsletter for your convenience.
