Media outlets have become pretty accustomed to broadcasting natural disaster news in recent years — and helping out after the fact as well. Oklahoma has had its fair share of misery and Cox Media Group is stepping up to help.
On Thursday, May 30, CMG’s five radio stations (News 102.3 KRMG, K95.5, Mix96.5, 103.3 The Eagle, and 105.7 The Bone) will join FOX23 (KOKI-TV) at LaFortune Park and broadcast live as part of a 13-hour fundraiser. It’s a continuation of the fundraising effort CMG launched more than a week ago. On Tuesday, May 21, all stations launched a broadcast campaign to encourage online donations to the American Red Cross of Oklahoma. All funds raised through these campaigns will be used to help Oklahomans impacted by the storms.
“Supporting our community in a time of uncertainty and stress is something that is part of the fabric of our organization,” said CMG -Tulsa Market Vice President Cathy Gunther. “We are honored to be able to do something to help our neighbors and know that our viewers and listeners will respond.”
CMG and American Red Cross volunteers will be collecting cash and check donations onsite on May 30, and supporters can also contribute by texting OKLAHOMA to 95920.
