Category: Station News
As Hurricanes Harvey and Irma ravaged the south, Northeast Wisconsin broadcasters WBAY-TV 2 and Woodward Radio Group stations partnered on an 18-hour Media-thon to aid in the relief efforts with the American Red Cross. JJ Keller Foundation kicked off the Media-thon with a $35,000 matching donation and when the day was over, listeners and viewers graciously donated over $100K via phone, and cash donations accepted at all Community First Credit Union locations.
Text and online donations were also made, but those dollar amounts aren’t available yet.
Woodward Radio Group stations include: 105.7 WAPL, 1150 WHBY, 95.9 KISS FM, Razor 94.7, KZ 104.3 and 95.3 The Score.
