The love keeps flowing from the radio industry for those affected by the hurricane. Cox Media Group Atlanta’s Radio stations, News 95.5 and AM750 WSB (WSB-AM), B98.5 (WSB-FM), 97.1 The River (WSRV), and KISS 104.1 (WALR), partnered with WSB-TV Ch. 2 Action News and The Atlanta Journal Constitution for a bottled water drive. The result was 10 trucks loaded up with water in just two days for the Convoy of Care.
Donna Hall, CMG Atlanta Radio’s VP and General Manager said, “I am astounded by the response of our listeners. The power of radio is clearly alive and well and it makes me proud to know that our four radio stations, along with our TV and print partners, can put out a call for help and fill 10 semi-trucks full of water for people in need. I’ve always known that radio works and it was affirmed again last week.”
The Convoy of Care is traveling with a law enforcement escort to deliver the approximately 500,000 bottles to Beaumont, Port Arthur, and Houston, Texas.
