In a show of industry unity, 25 Houston radio stations will simultaneously air a fundraiser to support the Houston Food Bank in order to feed those affected by Hurricane Harvey, Friday, September 8 through Sunday, September 10. The stations will run live and recorded promotional announcements asking for monetary donations to aid in Harvey relief efforts.
Oscar Rodriguez, President of the Texas Association of Broadcasters, said, “Radio’s strength is rooted in its connection to the community, and Houstonians rely on radio to inform, protect, and nourish their spirits. Now, Houston radio stations come together to literally nourish those harmed by Hurricane Harvey. So starts Houston’s recovery, with the power of its people – and radio – behind it.”
