"OPRAH'S BIG GIVE" has inspired MONTICELLO Talk WCHV-A/CHARLOTTESVILLE PD/morning man JOE THOMAS to launch "JOE THOMAS' 'Big Talk'," in which listeners pay $200 or $500 to guest-host on THOMAS' show. "While everyone else is giving away money," said THOMAS, "I'm asking listeners to give me theirs."
"They can do anything they want," he added. "I'm hoping some local elected officials do it to get back at me." The take will be split evenly between two local charities, THE KIDS LIFT FOUNDATION and the UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA's CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL.
