iHEARTMEDIA/MEMPHIS Urban WHRK (K97), Urban AC KJMS (V101), Gospel WHAL (HALLELUJAH 95.7), and Urban AC WDIA (AM1070 ), rallied listeners from the GREATER MEMPHIS area in support of ST. JUDE during their annual two-day broadcast.
WHRK/KJMS APD SUZIE 'BIG SUE' PURNELL told ALL ACCESS, "We are overjoyed with the success of this year's ST JUDE Radiothon. ST. JUDE provides ground breaking research that touches lives across the world and right here in MEMPHIS. This is our fifth year and to break $200,000 is an amazing feat. It illustrates the passion our Urban brands and personalities have for ST. JUDE's work. To date we've raised close to three quarters-of-a-million dollars and it's all because of the generosity of our community."
This years event raised $201,119, nearly doubling last year's total. The funds are used to support finding cures and saving kids at ST. JUDE CHILDREN's RESEARCH HOSPITAL.
