Listen to Toni Thompson

That was Toni on KNCO Insight in October of last year. Thompson was most well-known and best remembered to us for the annual KNCO Turkey Drive, which thanks to our listeners brought in hundreds of turkeys every year. Thompson passed away over the weekend after an undisclosed illness. She was 66.
