WFNI's Kravitz Walking To Kokomo
November 18, 2008 at 4:29 AM (PT)
EMMIS Sports WFNI-A (1070 THE FAN)/INDIANAPOLIS afternoon co-host and INDIANAPOLIS STAR columnist BOB KRAVITZ will live up to his promise to walk all the way to KOKOMO, IN if JAMAL TINSLEY made the opening night roster of the INDIANA PACERS ... sort of.
Because of "safety concerns and highway traffic issues," KRAVITZ is doing the first 34 miles on a treadmill in the EMMIS building atrium, starting YESTERDAY (11/17) and continuing each afternoon through WEDNESDAY, and will walk the rest on THURSDAY afternoon on the road into KOKOMO, where he and co-host EDDIE WHITE will do their show from BUFFALO WILD WINGS. The walk will raise funds for the ALS ASSOCIATION.
WFNI PD KENT STERLING said, "We're happy that we can exploit BOB's innocuous threat to help raise money for a great cause while helping BOB get in better physical condition."
