ENTERCOM's NORFOLK cluster has stepped up in the wake of the SATURDAY (8/6) downing of a U.S. CHINOOK helicopter in AFGHANISTAN that killed 38, including 30 U.S. soldiers, mostly NAVY SEALS from SEAL TEAM 6 based in the NORFOLK area.
ENTERCOM/NORFOLK stations AC WWDE (2WD), Hot AC WPTE (94.9 THE POINT), Urban AC WVKL and Top 40/Rhythmic WNVZ (Z104) did a two-day donation drive at asking listeners to donate money and hard goods to the families of the NAVY SEALS through the NAVY SEAL FOUNDATION, which will help provide immediate support to the families of the fallen SEALS.
In a press release, ENTERCOM NORFOLK VP/Operations DON LONDON commented, "We’re happy to work with the military and proud that we can give back to these amazing women and men who sacrifice so much for all of us. These heroes are so important to HAMPTON ROADS and to our nation."
