SOUTH CENTRAL MEDIA/NASHVILLE Creative Services/Production Director JIM MCCARTHY tells ALL ACCESS, "The good people of NASHVILLE came together and donated nearly $12,000 for the BRYANT Family during THURSDAY’s Request-a-thon on 96.3 JACK FM. That’s a LOT of $25 requests (plus some $50, $100, $500 and $1,400 requests/donations)."
On the afternoon of FRIDAY, APRIL 10th, JOHN BRYANT, his wife KORI and 9 week old baby girl OLIVIA were caught in the direct path of a destructive F3 tornado in MURFREESBORO, TENNESSEE. The tornado claimed the lives of KORI and OLIVIA, leaving JOHN critically injured. The BRYANT Family Memorial fund was set up by friends and relatives of the BRYANTS. It is designed to help JOHN with medical expenses and the costs of memorial services for his late wife and daughter.
