102.5 WDVE Rocks’ on-air personalities Randy Baumann, Bill Crawford, Val Porter, Mike Prisuta, Michele Michaels, and Sean McDowell broadcast on-site from the Eat’n Park Atrium at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC Thursday, September 15 through Saturday, September 17. In the process, the station helped raise $605,000 for the hospital’s foundation. It was the ninth annual DVE Rocks for Children’s Radiothon and the third consecutive year surpassing $600K in donations. The event has now exceeded more than $4 million in total giving.
“We want to thank WDVE and its listeners for their tremendous support. This year, and for the past nine years, the DVE community has given generously to sick and injured kids so they can get back to what they do best – being a kid,” said Greg Barrett, President, Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation.
“WDVE’s Rocks for Children’s Radiothon continues to improve the life of the families in the Pittsburgh community,” added Tim McAleer, Market President for iHeartMedia Pittsburgh. “We truly appreciate the generosity of the 102.5 WDVE Rocks listeners and their willingness to support their hometown children’s hospital.”
