Audacy Cleveland Supports UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital With Radiothon in Cleveland
Audacy Cleveland raised $180,280 to benefit University Hospitals (UH) Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital during Star 102’s (WDOK-FM) 2023 Rainbow Radiothon in Cleveland. Funds donated during the 21st annual event helped bring the station’s radiothon contributions to over $5.4 million since 2003.
“Year after year, I’m astounded by the selfless contributions from our audience,” said Tom Herschel, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, at Audacy. “It’s fulfilling to see what Star 102’s hard work can accomplish during this season of giving. Hearing the appreciation and positivity over the air has made the reward much greater.”
Hosted by Star 102 morning show co-hosts Jen Toohey and Tim Richards, 2023 Rainbow Radiothon was broadcast live from the Star 102 Studios from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET on Friday, December 8. Throughout the event, Toohey and Richards showcased stories of love, hope and compassion featuring the hospital’s young patients and dedicated staff who care for them.
With more than one million patient visits per year, UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital provides nationally recognized pediatric care close to home. The money raised from the “Rainbow Radiothon” helps advance the personalized care the hospital can provide to its young patients.
