WFLY Became Jacob 92.3 For A Day
August 21, 2009 at 6:36 AM (PT)
When ALBANY BROADCASTING Top 40 WFLY (FLY 92.3)/ALBANY's THE MORNING RUSH (starring BRIAN COOLIE and CHRISSY CAVOTTA) heard that BHBL HIGH SCHOOL Head Football Coach MATT SHELL's son JACOB had been diagnosed with neuroblastoma, they reached out to BRIAN.
CHRISSY explained to ALL ACCESS, "We learned that JACOB's 'Make A Wish' was to play SIR MIX-A-LOT's "Baby Got Back" and hang out with the MORNING RUSH, and we wanted to make that happen."
So at 8a, YESTERDAY (8/20), WFLY 92.3 became JACOB 92.3 for the rest of the morning show, with custom imaging and a logo. JACOB got to play anything he wanted and SIR MIX-A-LOT even called the show! They solicited donations for his medical expenses, and the SARATOGA RACE TRACK will be named after JACOB on SEPTEMBER 4th where he will receive a trophy in the winners circle. JACOB will also meet with the NY GIANTS and they are sending JACOB to YANKEE STADIUM for a private tour and to a attend a YANKEES game on LABOR DAY.
