CUMULUS Hot AC WPLJ/NEW YORK made a dream come true for a 13-year-old girl afflicted with a brain tumor. The station worked with MAKE-A-WISH to grant young OLIVIA's wish to be a "pop star for a day," inviting her on the air for an interview with WPLJ night host RALPHIE AVERSA, and when she arrived, she got the full superstar treatment, including a fully-stocked green room, a meet-and-greet, and paparazzi and fans on hand. OLIVIA was escorted through the station by EPIC VP of Promotion CHARLIE FOSTER.
The pop star experience was one of 50 wishes granted nationwide on "National Believe Day" by MACY'S and MAKE-A-WISH.
