Broadcasters Foundation Works


BroadcastersFoundationA decade after Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast, the Broadcasters Foundation reminds us it helped then.

The organization gave out a total of some $250,000 in emergency aid to about 250 radio and television broadcasters who were affected personally by the hurricane.

Most of the money was raised in a few days from a matching-grant program inspired by board member Richard Foreman, says the foundation.

The money helped a variety of people in the broadcasting business, including salespeople, business managers, air talent, program directors, news photographers, receptionists, producers, graphic artists, anchors, sports directors, camera operators, traffic assistants, and engineers.
