Milwaukee/NARI Home Improvement Council Honors Gus Gnorski

Nov. 19, 2010

The Milwaukee Chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), the area’s leading home improvement and remodeling industry resource for more than 49 years, presented its annual “Building Milwaukee” Award to Gus Gnorski, FOX6 TV personality and well-known Milwaukee handyman, at the association’s monthly membership meeting on Tues., Nov. 16.

 

The “Building Milwaukee” Award was created to recognize efforts made by individuals and groups who concentrate on community improvements and assist in the growth of the home remodeling industry.

 

“Gus Gnorski is considered to be Milwaukee’s best-known handyman and he has been able to answer thousands of listeners and viewers questions relating to home improvement and repairs,” said Diane Ausavich, CR, president of Milwaukee/NARI. “His experience of nearly 45 years has allowed him to teach homeowners when to do it themselves and when to turn to the professionals for help. He has been an advocate for Milwaukee/NARI and its members, and we recognize his efforts for helping homeowners enjoy their home to a fuller extent.”

 

Gnorski began broadcasting when he attended St. Joseph’s High School in Kenosha and worked evenings at an FM-radio station. He continued his interest in broadcasting, choosing it as a major at Marquette University.

 

He has been teaching people for more than 30 years about when to do it themselves and when to turn to professionals for help with home repairs. Gnorski began working for WTMJ Radio in 1966 and joined FOX 6 in 1992. Since then, he has taped more than 700 episodes of his weekly “Ask Gus” television show. He is also a regular on the FOX morning “Wake-up News.”

 

Gnorski and his wife Kay have four grown children and eight grandchildren. They reside in Port Washington.

The Milwaukee/NARI Home Improvement Council was chartered in July 1961, as a Chapter of the National Home Improvement Council. In May of 1982, the National Home Improvement Council merged with the National Remodelers Association to form NARI – the National Association of the Remodeling Industry.

 

The Council’s goals of encouraging ethical conduct, professionalism, and sound business practices in the remodeling industry have led to the remodeling industry’s growth and made NARI a recognized authority in that industry. With over 870 members, the Milwaukee Chapter is the nation’s largest.
