CBS Radio’s KYKY-FM St. Louis (Y98) hosted an on-air request-a-thon on 5/24. The Phillips and Company Morning Show played listener requests for donations benefiting the American Red Cross effort for Moore, Oklahoma, raising $33,670. The President of Lion’s Choice, a local fast-food chain, called in at the end of the 14-hour broadcast to match every donation, boosting the total to $67,340.
Says Guy Phillips from the Phillips and Company: “It’s easy to underestimate the power of caring, but this city’s generosity touches me personally every time we ask for their help. I can’t thank our listeners enough for their generosity! Now, where are our roast beef sandwiches?”
The Phillips & Company Morning Show is made up of Guy Phillips and show members Courtney Landrum, Jen Myers, and Kevin “the Intern”. The group has been together for the past 8 years bringing entertainment to listeners each weekday morning from 5:30a – 10a.
