November 11, 2014 at 12:58 PM (PT)
ENTERCOM Talk WRKO/BOSTON hosted a radiothon that raised over $115,000 for THE FISHER HOUSE and their continued efforts to provide a safe and welcoming environment for veterans and their families as they stay in BOSTON to receive medical treatment. The radiothon, broadcast from the Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center, was filled with moving stories from veterans, their families and FISHER HOUSE staff.
“When I hear rumblings that Talk radio is on the wane and then see crowds turn out and give as they did for the FISHER HOUSE RADIOTHON, I wonder just what the naysayers are smoking,” ENTERCOM/BOSTON VP/Market Manager PHIL ZACHARY said. “JEFF, BARRY, BILL COOKSEY and the entire ‘RKO team leveraged the umbilical connection they enjoy with their listeners and in just 13 hours forever changed the quality of life for MASSACHUSETTS’ greatest heroes and their families.”
