Cumulus Media announced the KSFO-AM San Francisco Morning Show with Brian Sussman and Katie Green raised $111,000 for the Fisher House Foundation, benefiting veterans, military and their families. Brian Sussman broadcasted live from the Fisher House Palo Alto on 5/23, from 5:00-9:00 a.m. with interviews from soldiers and their families who have used Fisher House’s services along with television personality, actor and former U.S. Marine Montel Williams.
KSFO’s Spencer Hughes (weekdays, 9:00 a.m.-noon) and Ethan Bearman (weekends, 4:00-7:00 p.m.) continued the effort throughout the Memorial Day weekend. Listeners donated online at KSFO.com/fisherhouse and by phone during the live broadcast and Spencer Hughes program. KSFO supported the fundraiser through on-air recorded and live promotional announcements, listings on KSFO.com and a message from Brian Sussman on the KSFO newsletter.
Said Brian Sussman: “Once again the San Francisco Bay Area’s patriotism was on display as the faithful listeners of KSFO rallied to help the families of our wounded warriors. It’s an honor and privilege to host this exciting radio event.”
Ken Fisher, Fisher House Foundation CEO, said: “Fisher House Foundation is thankful for the support of KSFO and their listeners. Yet again, Brian Sussman has brought to life the needs of our veterans, military and their families, and we greatly appreciate his voice. The funds raised from this incredibly successful campaign will make a huge impact for our veterans, military and their families.”
