WFAN Sets Radiothon For 9/11-12
August 25, 2008 at 4:34 PM (PT)
CBS Sports WFAN-A/NEW YORK is holding its 19th annual radiothon on SEPTEMBER 11-12, but this year, it's for the benefit of the BOOMER ESIASON FOUNDATION and the MIKE FRANCESA CHAMPIONS OF THE HEART FOUNDATION at ST. FRANCIS HEART HOSPITAL. The previous radiothons benefitted DON IMUS' IMUS RANCH, the TOMORROW'S CHILDREN'S FUND, and the CJ FOUNDATION FOR SIDS; IMUS took his radiothon for those charities with him to crosstown CITADEL Talk WABC-A/NEW YORK this year.
THURSDAY's portion of the radiothon will feature live broadcasts of ESIASON and CRAIG CARTON's morning show, JOE BENIGNO and EVAN ROBERTS' midday show, and FRANCESA's afternoon show from the ONE SEAPORT PLAZA headquarters of BGC, the brokerage firm that merged with CANTOR FITZGERALD; ESIASON's foundation was housed with CANTOR FITZGERALD at the WORLD TRADE CENTER before 9/11. The action shifts to WFAN's ASTORIA studios until 6a FRIDAY, when BOOMER and CARTON will broadcast from the HARD ROCK CAFE in MANHATTAN.
