The stations are Country Legends 106.9 and Big 94.5 Country, and the final tally for their joint, two-day radiothon was $90,380. Over the two days, more than 200 people called in to become a Partner in Hope. Joining Alpha Media, Topeka, in the fight against childhood cancer were title sponsors Envista Credit Union, State Farm agent Jim Garrison, and the team of volunteers who manned the constantly ringing phones.
Alpha Media Topeka Market Manager Larry Riggins said, “We have done the radiothon since the beginning of Country Cares for St. Jude Kids and it’s something we’ll continue to do because this is one of the most important things radio can do to eliminate childhood cancer. I want to thank everyone who became a Partner in Hope or renewed their partnership this year. You have joined the battle to fight childhood cancer, because, as Danny Thomas said, ‘No child should die in the dawn of life.’”
