Props to CLEAR CHANNEL Hot AC WKDD/AKRON morning hosts MATT PATRICK and ANGELA who raised a record $845,098 during the 7th Annual WKDD "Have A Heart Do Your Part "radiothon for AKRON CHILDRENS HOSPITAL, a $300K increase over last year's radiothon!
Ops/Programming Manager KEITH KENNEDY credits part of the success to the "WKDD Change Bandits" who collect spare change for weeks leading up to radiothon. The Bandits collected over $222,000 in change. "And man was it heavy! We had to use a forklift to load boxes into Brinks trucks," said KENNEDY.
