Townsquare Media Employees Share What St. Jude Means to Them – [VIDEO]
Our annual St. Jude Radiothon is an event everyone at the station looks forward to each year because we know it's our chance to raise a ton of cash for an extremely worthwhile cause. The two day event takes place not only on KISS-FM, but our six Townsquare Media sister-stations in Evansville (103GBF, 99.5 WKDQ, 105.3 WJLT, and Newstalk 1280 WGBF-AM), and in Owensboro (92.5 WBKR and Newstalk 1490 WOMI). As happy as we are to put on the radiothon, it's an emotional rollercoaster for many of us who have children of our own and listen to the stories of hope where a child pulls through as well as the stories of heartbreak where a childs illness was too much for them to overcome.
While we do our best to convey those emotions during the radiothon, I thought you'd like to put a face to some of the voices you hear. The teaser video below was put together by our Assistant Engineer/IT guy/all-around handyman, Ben Davis, and features our General Manager along with members of the KDQ and JLT air staff sharing their thoughts on St. Jude and why we as a group are proud to support their efforts in the research and treatment of childhood cancers and other life-threatening illnesses.
