JOURNAL BROACAST GROUP Top 40 WWST (STAR 102.1)/KNOXVILLE, TN has helped raise over a quarter-million dollars for EAST TENNESSEE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL. On MARCH 5th-6th, STAR 102.1 morning duo MARC and KIM conducted their yearly Radiothon live at WEST TOWN MALL in KNOXVILLE and stayed on air from 6a-6p each day, raising just over $131,000 for CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL’s Home Health department.
On THURSDAY, MARCH 12th, STAR 102.1 and CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL hosted their annual “Dancing with the KNOXVILLE Stars” gala event. With the help of local KNOXVILLE celebrities and television personalities, including STAR 102.1’s midday personality BECCA JAMES, the event raised more than $143,000.
Since the MARC and KIM show began on STAR 102.1, over $4.25 million has been raised for EAST TENNESSEE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL through a variety of station events and fundraising activities. “STAR 102.1 and JOURNAL BROADCAST GROUP are valued partners,” said SETH LINKOUS from CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL. “Their listeners prove time and time again how much they support and believe in the mission of CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL. Together, we’ve raised millions of dollars; the impact for the families we serve is immeasurable.”
