More than 250 radio and television broadcasters were in attendance MONDAY evening to honor FOX TV Pres./Station Ops DENNIS SWANSON, as he received the 2012 Golden Mike Award. The black-tie fundraiser was held at the PLAZA HOTEL in NEW YORK CITY and generated more than $250,000 to support the mission of the BROADCASTERS FOUNDATION OF AMERICA, the charity that provides aid to broadcasters in desperate need.
THE BROADCASTERS FOUNDATION has provided millions of dollars in aid to colleagues who lost their livelihood through a catastrophic event, debilitating disease, or unforeseen family tragedy. Individual membership is only $150 a year. Donations also can be made to the GUARDIAN FUND, and corporate contributions are accepted through the ANGEL INITIATIVE.
