With historic storms hitting Nebraska earlier in March and relief efforts still underway, NRG Media’s Central Nebraska market came together March 28 for their annual Fight Against Childhood Cancer Radiothon raising over $300,000 for the third year in a row.
“Words can’t describe how amazing of an effort this was by the good people of Central Nebraska in a month where our state was hit hard by historic storms for which relief efforts are still underway. Over $300,000 for the third year in a row was raised for the kids at St. Jude. Thanks to our NRG Media Central Nebraska Team led by Scott O’Rourke, Lisa Williams and Melissa Free with BIG assists Mark Reid, Bic, Dave Jenner, Andrew and Ryan on KGFW, Tom Velander and Kansas from our Grand Island Stations On-Air Staff showing up to join in on Thursday. Thanks to Sales for making it happen…Brian, Tim, Jeff, Shawn, Kent and Dalton in Kearney, and Pat and Courtney in Grand Island. Even down to Jim Hobbs helping to make sure everything was set up before and working with the St. Jude Folks. Cameryn, Kelly and Cedric from St. Jude were great to work with and a great part of the team for this event even though none of them have ever been part of our radiothon here in Central Nebraska before. WOW…I am in Awe,” stated Dallas Nau, Central Nebraska Market Manager.
Mary Quass, NRG President exclaimed, “You guys are just the best. With all the flooding and strife at home your loyal listeners and friends give to others when you ask!! So proud to see you live great local radio!“
