Clear Channel Cares About American Heart Month

After PRESIDENT OBAMA nationally proclaimed FEBRUARY as AMERICAN HEART MONTH, a movement dedicated to educating the public about heart disease, its risks and preventative measures. CLEAR CHANNEL MEDIA + ENTERTAINMENT has committed over $1 million worth of on-air media to help educate the public on the signs and risk factors associated with heart disease and stroke as part of its collaboration with the AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION. Earlier this month, CLEAR CHANNEL also teamed up with the AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION’s Go Red For Women® movement to encourage AMERICA to go RED for the 11th National Wear Red Day® on FEBRUARY 7th.
Beginning TODAY, FEBRUARY 14th, CLEAR CHANNEL will kick off a two-week PSA campaign across its 840 radio stations to educate listeners on the symptoms of heart disease and stroke in honor of AMERICAN HEART MONTH. Certain CLEAR CHANNEL stations will air a comedic yet informative PSA voiced by EMMY-nominated actress ELIZABETH BANKS that highlights the signs of heart attack in women, while all other CLEAR CHANNEL radio stations will air a second PSA, created by THE AD COUNCIL and the AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION, to help people recognize and respond to the sudden warning signs of a stroke.
“Over the past 50 years, AMERICAN HEART MONTH has become an annual tradition that unites men and women from all parts of the country and focuses attention on one the most serious health concerns facing Americans,” CLEAR CHANNEL Dir./Community Engagement JESSICA KING said. “At CLEAR CHANNEL, we believe it is critical to remind our listeners that it is incredibly important for everyone to know the warning signs of a stroke or a heart attack — and, as importantly, to understand tactics that can help prevent them."
Additionally, on FEBRUARY 6th, Z100/NEW YORK morning show co-host DANIELLE MONARO, was on-site at the Go Red For Women® / The Heart Truth ® Red Dress Collection? in New York City to celebrate Go Red For Women’s 10th anniversary alongside show models LINDSEY VONN, ANNASOPHIA ROBB, COLBIE CAILLAT, GIADA DE LAURENTIIS, GINA TORRES, BELLA THORNE, JOAN JETT, LEONA LEWIS, NENE LEAKES, RUTINA WESLEY, SASHA COHEN and VANNA WHITE, among others.
“I felt honored to be part of such an iconic campaign, one that has brought together women from all over the world for so many years with the sole purpose of improving women’s heart health,” said MONARO. “My involvement in the Red Dress Collection Show helped the AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION extend the fashion show’s reach beyond NYC and into the homes of CLEAR CHANNEL listeners across the U.S.”
