January 18, 2010 at 5:49 AM (PT)
CUMULUS AC WMXS (MIX 103)/MONTGOMERY morning duo JT & LEANNE (aka "Married with Microphones") teamed up with local restaurant owner JOSE PEREZ of JOSE'S CANTINA in nearby PRATTVILLE to collect canned food, bottled water and first aid supplies for the earthquake survivors in HAITI. JOSE has family in the area who made it but told him the region was in desperate need of the supplies.
Local TV station WSFA-12 (NBC) broadcast live with JT & LEANNE on FRIDAY morning (1/15) and throughout the weekend. By SUNDAY evening, the event had raised thousands of dollars and filled 2 Semi Tractor Trailers with relief supplies. TUESDAY the trucks pull out for MIAMI where the Dominican Embassy is awaiting the shipment and arranging for delivery to the earthquake stricken areas in HAITI.
JT & LEANNE said "The power of radio at the local level and the willingness of this community to help a humanitarian effort have come together once again."
