WEZN Helps Local Family Rebuild

COX AC WEZN (STAR 99.9)/BRIDGEPORT, CT was the exclusive radio station to broadcast from the location of ABC's "EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION" build in BRIDGEPORT.
The BROWN family had suffered a flood, a house fire with injury, and looting, causing them to lose most of their possessions. STAR 99.9 became the family's lifeline when the project fell behind schedule by sending out calls to their listeners and clients for volunteers, building materials, and food for the crew.
According to STAR 99.9 PD SAMANTHA STEVENS, "We were honored to be a part of this experience. The volunteers worked hard to build a beautiful house, and it was amazing to see the community come together to help the BROWN family."
