The folks at Clear Channel's Akron/Canton Southern Command pass this along:
The 8th Annual "Have a Heart - Do Your Part" Radiothon on hot AC WKDD/98.1 over the weekend broke a record. The total raised for Akron Children's Hospital this time around: $858,376.98.
The money raised includes over $141,000 raised by some 1400 "Change Bandits", who have spent the past few weeks collecting spare change for the effort.
Congratulations for a job well done. And, for the folks who don't believe Clear Channel and other major corporate radio players can "do anything right", we say it's heartening that for at least three days, one of their stations played a major role in bringing in this kind of money for a very worthy recipient...
