Houston Radio: CBS Aims To Break Guinness Record

In an effort to help raise awareness of the literacy crisis, CBS RADIO Houston has partnered with the Points of Light Foundation and the Barbara Bush Literacy Initiative to help break the Guinness World Record for the most children reading with an adult in 24 hours on Monday, October 19.

Each of the five CBS RADIO Houston stations will visit a Houston area school.

Additionally, over the last two weeks, CBS RADIO Houston personalities asked their listeners to volunteer and help support this campaign.  There are thousands of volunteers still needed.  Anyone in the community is welcome to go to and click the “volunteer” button for Read Across the Globe.

“We believe in putting the power of our stations and employees to work for great causes, and providing community service not only on the air but by our lending our time as well,” said Sarah Frazier, Senior Vice President & Market Manager, CBS RADIO Houston.  “We’re thrilled to be partners with Dr. Julie Baker-Finck, (President of the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation) and the Barbara Bush Literacy Initiative on this mission; there’s nothing more important in our community than our kids”.
