Radio is always there for St. Jude and the latest station to pitch in is Los Angeles rocker 95.5 KLOS. Led by Frosty, Heidi & Frank in the morning, Marci Wiser and Steve Jones (Jonesy’s Jukebox) in middays, and Gary Moore in afternoon drive, the KLOS crew raised $856,130 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in the St. Jude Rocks Radiothon, Thursday, February 28 through Friday, March 1. It was a record total for the second consecutive year.
Dawn Girocco, VP/Market Manager, Cumulus Los Angeles, said: “We thank our incredibly generous listeners, advertisers, and team members who rallied once again to help the children of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital suffering from childhood cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Cumulus Los Angeles and 95.5 KLOS are proud to unite our community around such a special cause and to raise awareness in the process. It’s truly remarkable what we were able to accomplish together in just 26 broadcast hours.”
