Swick Broadcasting’s WBET-FM (Sturgis) has announced that it recently raised $104,330 for the United Way of St. Joseph County, during an 18-hour radio marathon that featured local officials and community business leaders as guest DJs. The Radiothon was held on May 24.
“We are so proud of our local St. Joseph County listeners for their generosity in supporting the United Way,” stated Steve Swick, Chief Executive Officer of Swick Broadcasting and Local Radio Networks. “Local radio is the heart of the community, and everybody wants the thrill of being a DJ. Our local dignitaries had lots of fun on-air during this special charity drive, and our listeners clearly loved it and responded with their kind donations.”
