On September 27, Entercom’s WOMC-FM aired a 13-hour radiothon to benefit Beaumont Children’s Hospital. The broadcast took place from the South Tower Concourse of the hospital and was anchored by WOMC personalities Stephen Clark, JoAnne Purtan, Jim Johnson and Beau Daniels. They were joined by special guests and other station airstaff.
More than 500 donors contributed to the radiothon, which raised money for children’s programs. 44 listeners became Miracle Makers by pledging a $20 on-going monthly donation.
Some of the initiatives that will benefit from the funding include a student robot that will allow a patient to virtually attend school classes while in the hospital, the NoBLE anti-bullying campaign, Beau plush bears given to children in Beaumont hospitals and music and pet therapies.
