ADAMS RADIO GROUP Top 40 WJFX (HOT 107.9)/FORT WAYNE welcomed FLO RIDA to the station FRIDAY (2/12) for a visit to help collect water to send to FLINT with the popular recording artist. The station has paired with retail chain ART VAN FURNITURE and METRO PCS to collect cases of water to send to residents of the embattled MICHIGAN city affected by the tainted water supply there in FLO RIDA's #KeepTheWaterFlo campaign.
“FLO has his own water company, and we heard he was on his way to FLINT”, said HOT 107.9 Brand Manager ROBBIE MACK. “He was passing through FORT WAYNE, and we thought it was the perfect way for us to do some good for our friends to the north.”
“This has been a big national story, added MACK, "but the coverage seems to be dwindling. Unfortunately, the problems are not. It’ll be billions of dollars, and years of work. The need for clean drinking water for the residents of FLINT, MICHIGAN remains an issue. We’re asking for one case of water from all of our listeners. Just one case. ART VAN will transport the water at the end of the campaign."
