Broadcasters Continue to Raise Funds for Katrina Relief

Yet more broadcaster efforts in hurricane relief:
+ Premiere Radio Networks said listeners of the syndicated “The Glenn Beck Program” raised $162,000 in two weeks through a charity auction benefiting the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. On Sept. 7, Beck announced that more than 50 items were available for auction; each had sold by Sept. 20. Items drawing the largest bids included a three-night private charter cruise for six on a 125-ft. yacht for $25,000; “The Ultimate Glenn Beck Experience,” two first-class accommodations to Philadelphia, where Beck’s show is based, to watch the program and have lunch with Beck and his radio crew, for $11,000; a cover advertisement in Fusion Magazine for $11,000; and a Napa Valley three-day/two-night getaway for $8,500.
+WGNA(FM) in Schenectady, N.Y. has been raising funds for three weeks for the American Red Cross. On Sept. 29, the station’s “Sean and Richie Show” will present the organization with a check for more than $146,000 in donations received from listeners after a two-day radio-thon, dance night, on-air auction and a call for cash donations. Additionally, a local listener agreed to match all donations up to $100,000.
