1720 ENTERTAINMENT/NASHVILLE Regional Promotions/SW MIKE SEVERSON has joined forces with COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL to serve as their Country Format Consultant on a parttime basis. COMPASSION is a Christian child advocacy ministry that seeks to find one-on-one sponsorships of children in severely impoverished nations. Currently, over one million children are receiving food, medical care, education and shelter because of their sponsors.
In his new role, SEVERSON will be working to recruit radio stations and artists to serve as advocates for COMPASSION and to get the word out to listeners and fans. MT. WILSON BROADCASTING Country KKGO/LOS ANGELES was the first Country station to partner with COMPASSION by holding a radiothon last SEPTEMBER where 250 listeners signed up to sponsor children. PD TONYA CAMPOS visited NICARAGUA last year and learned firsthand of the devastation and the desperation. Read more about her trip here.
