Entercom raised over $200,000 to benefit University Hospitals (UH) Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital during WDOK Star 102’s “2020 Rainbow Radiothon” in Cleveland. Funds donated during the 18th annual event helped bring the station’s radiothon contributions to $4.7 million since 2003.
“We’re proud to support UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital and its mission to make miracles happen for children and families every day,” said Tom Herschel, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Cleveland. “I am so thankful for everyone who made this Radiothon successful, including Jen and Tim, the Entercom Cleveland staff and the hospital team. I am so grateful for the incredible generosity of our listeners.”
