Marquette’s Tom Feldhusen Passes at 84

December 8, 2023

Former Upper Peninsula radio and television personality Tom Feldhusen passed away December 2 at his home in Marquette at age 84.  The long-time news and sportscaster may be best remembered for co-hosting the popular "Déjà Vu" morning talk show on WJPD-AM radio, where he was news director for nearly 30 years. WJPD had offices in Marquette and Ishpeming, Michigan.

Feldhusen started his on-air career at WGON-AM in his hometown of Munising, Michigan, after short stints teaching government at William G. Mather High School and as a sales representative for Lakeshore Ford, both in Munising. He also worked several years as evening news anchor for WLUC-TV (Marquette), retiring from broadcasting in 2003.

He signed off his shows with this for his listeners: "And that's the news. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day."

Services are scheduled for Saturday, December 9 in Republic.
