Radiothon Raises $506,238 for American Family Children's Hospital
96.3 Star Country
Madison, Wisconsin - A 39-hour radio broadcast over three days raised $506,238 in pledges to support operations and research for American Family Children's Hospital. Last year's total was $475,645.
The Champions for Kids Radiothon, hosted by John Flint and Tammy Lee from 96.3 Star Country in Madison, encouraged listeners to make donations online or by phone.
The broadcasts included interviews with former and current patients treated at the hospital for cancer, heart disease, kidney disease, traumatic injuries and other serious medical conditions.
96.3 Star Country is owned by Clear Channel Radio Madison, which worked with the hospital to produce and coordinate Radiothon. This year, air personalities from other Clear Channel stations also participated and asked for pledges from their listeners: WZEE (104.1 FM), WIBA-FM (101.5 FM), WIBA-AM (1310 AM) and WTSO (1070 AM).
American Family Children's Hospital is a complete children's medical and surgical center with a pediatric intensive care unit, an internationally recognized transplant surgery program, a children's cancer center, and family-friendly atmosphere.
