Cincinnati Fills Semi's for Operation Katrina
Four Infinity stations - including our friends Bill & Amanda at B-105 - were up at dawn this morning for a live joint morning show remote and live broadcast in support of hurricane relief efforts. Click to see how it looked (and sounded).
PD Marty Thompson of WUBE writes: "I do not have the final stats yet, but our 4 stations here in Cincy hosted "Operation Katrina" today. It was a 13 hour 4 station radiothon simulcast raising cash and collecting needed goods for the victims of the worst natural disaster in American history. Between fishbowl and "pay for play" donations, we are over $200,000 in cash and 4 semi trucks full of water and other non perishables. The outpouring of support from the community was incredible."
