WQXA-FM on-air personalities, Nipsey, Jen Shade and Earl David Read were recognized by CMNH for their show’s annual “Pay 4 Play” fundraising efforts, benefiting Penn State Children’s Hospital in Hershey, PA. The award was presented in late March at the CMNH Annual Convention in Orlando, FL.

Jen, Nipsey and Earl continuously inspire their listeners to share their passion for helping sick and injured children in our community. Thanks to Pay 4 Play’s incredible contribution of $1.2 million over the last ten years, we are able to continue our mission to save kids’ lives by funding cutting edge equipment, family-centered programs and transformative research. We couldn’t be more proud of this dynamic trio, and we congratulate them and their listeners on this national recognition.”
WQXA-FM Morning Co-Host Jen Shade said: “Our relationship with our listeners is what makes the annual Pay 4 Play event a success. Because of them, our team has been able to take this opportunity to a level never dreamed possible, raising over $1.2 million dollars over the past 10 years. That money stays right here in our community to help our children. It is a great feeling that we are elated to share!”
