CONNOISSEUR MEDIA Classic Rock WDRC (102.9 THE WHALE)/HARTFORD, Rock WPLR (99.1 PLR)/NEW HWAVEN and TV station WFSB are teaming up to help raise money for the victims of the earthquake in NEPAL.
This WEDNESDAY, APRIL 29th, the CONNECTICUT SCIENCE CENTER and the BRANFORD CONNECTICUT SERVICE PLAZA (95 northbound) will be the two areas dedicated to raising cash donations for AMERICARES that will go directly to the NEPAL survivors.
Both 102.9 THE WHALE and 99.1 PLR will have representatives and on-air talent including morning show CHAZ and AJ on site starting at 10a (ET) and collecting until 6:30p (ET).
Said GM KRISIN OKESSON: “These stations, over the years, have been dedicated to helping out whenever we can. We have been there for the citizens of CONNECTICUT in times of need, but when a tragedy like this hits, it is important to go global”
“Radio, once again, is doing what it does best -- it comes through in times of need," added OM KEITH DAKIN. "Thanks to our partners at WFSB, we hope to raise a significant sum of money that can really help out.”
