HORIZON BROADCASTING GROUP Classic Country KRCO-A/PRINEVILLE, OR and the CROOK COUNTY/PRINEVILLE ROTARY, raised $10,150 in contributions during its 16th annual “Dollars for Scholars” Radiothon last FRIDAY (4/1). The day-long broadcast, hosted by KRCO PD DAVE CLEMENS and News/Public Affairs Dir BILL BAKER, featured local ROTARIANS reading advertisements for local businesses and song requests for listeners who contributed to the ROTARY SCHOLARSHIP FUND.
The fund benefits CROOK COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL students who seek to further their education. To date, the ROTARY DOLLARS FOR SCHOLARS program has raised over $156,000. KRCO-AM, which celebrated its 61th anniversary on FEBRUARY 1st, has donated the airtime for the Radiothon since 1996.
