Five Entercom Country stations, US99 (WUSN-FM) in Chicago, 99.5 WYCD (WYCD-FM) in Detroit, 103.7 KSON (KSON-FM) in San Diego, KMLE Country@107.9 (KMLE-FM) in Phoenix, and Y108 (WDSY-FM) in Pittsburgh hosted radiothons in their respective communities as part of the hospital’s “Country Cares for St. Jude Kids” program. The end result? Over $2 million raised for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
“I am incredibly proud of our stations and listeners for this remarkable effort to help save the lives of children with cancer,” said Pat Paxton, President of Programming, Entercom. “It does take a village, and it is an honor for Entercom to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on this important cause.”
“We could not be more thankful for our partner Entercom and its listeners, who epitomize the giving spirit and show unwavering support for the lifesaving mission of St. Jude,” said Richard Shadyac Jr., President and CEO, ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “It’s through these deep community connections at stations across the country that thousands of people from all walks of life come together to help St. Jude continue its important work of finding cures for and treating children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases.”
