FISHER HOUSE FOUNDATION, which constructs comfort homes to provide free, temporary housing to the families of service members needing medical care, recently presented its Patriot Award to CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO in recognition of its ongoing support of the FISHER HOUSE mission. CLEAR CHANNEL has collectively raised nearly $1 million for FISHER HOUSE over the past two years; It has also aired public service announcements, interviews, on-site broadcasts from FISHER HOUSES and website content, with media exposure valued at more than $5 million.
"All of us at CLEAR CHANNEL are proud of our commitment to the FISHER HOUSE and the many military families they serve," SVP/Programming CLAY HUNNICUTT said. "Though we are a network of 850 radio stations across the U.S., we pride ourselves on our local involvement. It is important to us that we're strong community partners in each of the 150 markets where our stations are located. Our partnership with the FISHER HOUSE allows CLEAR CHANNEL to make a difference in the lives of veteran families who live, work and play in our station’s neighborhoods."
"My uncle ZACHARY was honored with many titles during the course of his lifetime, but none were more important to him than that of ‘Patriot,’" FISHER HOUSE FOUNDATION Chairman/CEO KEN FISHER said. "We’re grateful to CLEAR CHANNEL for the work they’ve done on behalf of our military families."
