Another great idea to help local businesses from the CMG family of radio stations. Even though Tampa Bay was not directly hit by Hurricane Irma, many local businesses felt the impact of the storm. Some lost power, lost inventory, or had to close their doors for days. Cox Media Group is launching Cox Media Group Cares Tampa Bay. It’s a brilliant idea to help local businesses in the community and a great way to build strong relationships in the community. Here are the details.
Every Saturday between Oct. 21 and Nov. 25, local companies will be featured on CMG stations. The businesses will receive free on-air, online, and social media promotion throughout the week. The supporting station will also be on-site at each business location that Saturday. In all, 40 businesses in Tampa will receive approximately $250,000 in promotional support.
CMG Tampa Market Manager Keith Lawless said, “CMG understands local businesses are an important part of our communities. The disruption from Hurricane Irma has greatly impacted these businesses. We are proud to help support them at a time when they need it most. With the help of our local sponsors, we are promoting Tampa Bay area businesses across all six of our CMG radio stations.”
