March 9, 2012 at 3:59 AM (PT)
GREAT PLAINS MEDIA Country WGSQ (THE COUNTRY GIANT) and sister Top 40 WGIC (MAGIC 98.5)/COOKEVILLE, TN teamed up with WAL-MART and FREDDY DUNCAN AND SONS MOVING & STORAGE to collect items for victims of last week’s severe weather and tornadoes. Both station’s staffs did an all-day broadcast urging listeners to donate items for those who suffered losses after the storm’s damage.
"This community has always been really good to come out and help each other in times of need and this time is no different," WGSQ morning host STYCKMAN said. "We’re helping our neighbors, our friends and family. I absolutely love being from this area."
STYCKMAN and Promotion Dir. ZACH LEDBETTER visited some of the hardest hit areas on Thursday to deliver the items that had been collected. "Seeing this damage firsthand really puts life into perspective and shows how something can be taken away so quickly," LEDBETTER said. "I know we’re all proud to be a small part in helping these communities."
