CBS Radio Top 40 WNKS (KISS 95.1)/CHARLOTTE will become “CHRIS 95.1FM” all day TOMORROW, MAY 7th in honor of CHRIS CORSI from WAXHAW, N.C., who suffered a catastrophic spinal cord injury last summer as a result of a diving accident. Despite a successful surgery, CHRIS continues to face challenges everyday as a quadriplegic, paralyzed from the chest down.
CHRIS’ 95.1 FM will host “Play Anything Day” from 6a-6p on WEDNESDAY, MAY 7th, taking requests in exchange for a donation to LEVINE’S CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL. Listeners are encouraged to call in to request any song or visit www.chris951.com to make donations. This all-day event will be hosted by DREX, MANEY and CASSIDAY from DREX and MANEY Mornings.
“Not only are we naming the station after CHRIS for a day in celebration of his strength and courage," OM/PD JOHN REYNOLDS said. “We are also sharing with our listeners the chance to give back to LEVINE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL – a facility that has given so much to our community.”
