The NEW YORK MARKET RADIO (NYMRAD) Holiday Party takes place FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2nd at SLATE RESTAURANT & BAR, 54 West 21st St. in NEW YORK CITY, from 1-4:30p. The largest radio-only party in the country brings together hundreds of radio industry executives, air talent, advertising agency representatives, and advertisers .
This year, a portion of the ticket proceeds will be donated to the BROADCASTERS FOUNDATION OF AMERICA for the STU OLDS MEMORIAL FUND, established in honor of the former KATZ MEDIA GROUP CEO who passed away last year. THE BROADCASTERS FOUNDATION provides financial assistance to broadcasters who suffer from severe hardship and are in desperate need of help.
NYMRAD continues its custom of collecting Toys for Tots for needy children in the community. All attendees are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy.
NYMRAD Exec. Dir. DEBORAH BEAGAN noted, "The radio community will gather not only for an afternoon of fun and camaraderie, but also for giving back -- a practice for which radio is renowned."
Tickets are $150 each and can be purchased online at www.nymrad.org/holidayparty or call (646) 254-4493.
