CBS Radio St. Louis has joined the fundraising for the Oklahoma City tornado victims. The Phillips and Company Morning Show on KYKY(FM) ran a 14-hour requestathon.
The request-for-a-donation marathon generated $33,670. But it didn’t stop there. The president of a local fast food chain known for its roast beef sandwiches, Lion’s Choice, called in and matched the collection dollar-for-dollar. The American Red Cross is the recipient.
Guy Phillips, of the namesake morning show, said: “It’s easy to underestimate the power of caring, but this city’s generosity touches me personally every time we ask for their help. I can’t thank our listeners enough for their generosity! Now, where are our roast beef sandwiches?”
