RADIO TRAINING NETWORK Christian AC WJIS (THE JOY FM 88.1)/SARASOTA, FL morning show "The Morning Cruise" recently hosted its first "Bike Ride for the Homeless" on FEBRUARY 15th and 16th. Morning hosts CARMEN BROWN and DAVE CRUSE rode 126 miles with approximately 75 listeners from BROOKSVILLE, FL to BRADENTON, FL. Almost $30,000 was raised by the riders for shelters suggested by WJIS and chosen by individual cyclists.
WORD LABEL GROUP artist MARK SCHULTZ joined the morning show for a live broadcast near the SUNCOAST TRAIL and he joined the first day's ride, followed by a mini-concert in TAMPA.
