XRT's Request For Help
January 3, 2006 at 6:03 PM (PT)
CBS AAA WXRT (93XRT)/CHICAGO has a special day of programming lined up for this FRIDAY, JANUARY 6th from 9a-5p called XRT'S REQUEST FOR HELP." WXRT is soliciting listener song requests in exchange for a $50 or more donation to HABITAT FOR HUMANITY for on-going relief efforts to rebuild the GULF COAST. Beginning this FRIDAY at 9a, at the conclusion of LIN BREHMER’s morning show, 93XRT will go commercial-free and devote the workday hours to fundraising efforts.
In 2005, XRT listeners donated more than $300,000 to the AMERICAN RED CROSS during two inaugural on-air fundraising campaigns, to benefit TSUNAMI relief and to benefit initial relief efforts immediately following HURRICANE KATRINA.
