Following up on an earlier story (NET NEWS 3/27), CBS RADIO Top 40 WNKS (KISS 95.1)/CHARLOTTE renamed itself "VICTORIA 95.1FM" all day YESTERDAY (3/28), in honor of five-year-old VICTORIA WATERS, who was born five weeks premature and has been fighting for her life ever since.
New morning duo MAINEY & DREX called on the power of the people and raised over $18,000 in just 12 hours as "VICTORIA 95.1 FM" went into "Play Anything Day" mode, taking requests in exchange for a donation to LEVINE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL.
WNKS OM/PD JOHN REYNOLDS told ALL ACCESS, "Today's incredibly successful fundraiser for the LEVINE CHILDREN's HOSPITAL in CHARLOTTE proves once again how important local radio is in our cities and how local talent like MANEY & DREX are what makes radio the most important connection to every community."
