March 1, 2010 at 12:45 PM (PT)
COX BROADCASTING Country WZZK/BIRMINGHAM helped retire the mortgage of the family of fallen PELHAM POLICE OFFICER PHILLIP DAVIS. On FRIDAY (02/26), the station staged a benefit show, called, “Night of 1,000 Stars”, featuring RANDY OWEN, MARK COLLIE, MATT KENNON, and the NASHVILLE HILLBILLIES. The community has now helped raise a total of $205,000 to pay off the officer's $200,000 mortgage. DAVIS’ wife PAULA is now raising 2 children on her own. Her late husband PHILLIP was shot and killed while making a traffic stop on I-65 in DECEMBER, 2009.
