The Fish LA hosted another sure to be award winning SOLD OUT Women’s Night Out at Mariners Church on Friday, February 20th. The Fish LA originated this concept and drew over 3,000 female Fish listeners. Featured guests included Ellie Holcomb, Tim Timmons and Amberly Neese and also The Family Friendly Morning Show’s Randi Tyler and Mary Hughes. It was a remarkable evening with 20+ sponsors participating with exhibits, free food/desserts/coffee, photo booth and more!
When fifteen year old Trenten Shubert and his family turned to local radio stations* for nominations to help them find a veteran to give a free car to, they never imagined they’d get over 140 nominations.
They are excited to give Lacey Auble a free 2012 Ford Focus. With the help of Gresham Ford the vehicle will also include Ford Extended Service Protection warranty and free Maintenance Care agreement at Gresham Ford Quick Lane. Lacey Auble will be given the keys during a presentation including free pancake breakfast on Monday, Presidents Day at 9 am at the dealership located on 1999 E Powell Blvd in Gresham Oregon. The public is invited to attend.
Lacey Auble served as a combat medic from 1999 to 2005 and is now working with Veterans at the Portland VA. According to her husband, Army Veteran Tyler Auble, he wanted to honor her for her military service as well as her current work, “She spends extra hours working overtime and caring for other veterans, making sure that their needs are met and still manages to show God’s love to our four kids. In her spare time, she helps me as a Pastors wife, showing Gods love to our community.” In addition to the winner of the vehicle, Gresham Ford will be honoring three others with a check for $250 each. The honorees are Jason Muehe, Ryan Adovnick and Justin Damerville.
The vehicle is a 2012 Ford Focus SEL with an automatic transmission, Title and registration fees are included and since this is a gift, there are no taxes to be paid by the recipient.

104.7 The Fish WFSH/ATLANTA presented 75,000 Valentine’s Day cards to the patients of Sibley Heart Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta on Friday, February 13. Beth Bacall hosted a day long broadcast live from the hospital on behalf of the station. The lobby of CHOA was turned into a mountain of valentines, where patients could dive in and select any card to their liking, while other kids had cards hand delivered to their rooms.
This began with a month long initiative called CHOA Heartstrong originally created by Bacall; the aim was to serve and send love to local children in need with a few hundred cards. Listeners responded in kind, overwhelming the station with tens of thousands valentines that were dropped off and mailed in.
For someone beautiful.
Dear new friend…
Your strength blows me away!
These are a sampling of the words drawn, crafted, and pasted on the valentines that were delivered by Beth Bacall and 104.7 the Fish. “You are loved, you are remembered, you are brave,” Bacall said on air. “These are some of the messages you are sending as thank you’s to the kids of Children’s Healthcare.”
“This is really ministry,” she said. “I don’t take it lightly. God will equip you to perform. This is really raw real format. We hear from a lot of listeners. It’s the message in the music that’s moving the heart and soul of the people who listen.”
An indoor game of Snowball Toss broke out on the His Radio morning show. As co-host Alison Storm Lowry explains, "Can you believe the snowball toss game was on clearance? Just another day at the office. #score #snowballtoss #robwon #ofcourse."
