WKRZ Helps U.S. Troops In Iraq
January 9, 2007 at 2:44 PM (PT)
Last month, on the ROCKY, SUE & PSYCHO morning show at ENTERCOM Top 40 WKRZ/WILKES BARRE, morning co-host SUE covered a news story about a mom in NEW JERSEY who was collecting Silly String for her son, who is deployed in IRAQ. Troops there have been using it to spray for bomb trip wires when they enter buildings. What started out as a quickie news story soon snowballed into a major community project for the station.
PD TIAS SCHUSTER tells ALL ACCESS, "Today we capped off a month of collecting Silly String for the troops by loading up our van with 20,000 cans of the stuff. It's bound for DEPTFORD, NJ, where it will be shipped via 747 cargo plane to KUWAIT next week. Our listeners really came through big time on this!"
