WCCC in Hartford is putting together a CD of acoustic performances from major artists, donated by the artists and their labels, to benefit the victims and families of the recent Sandy Hook School tragedy in nearby Newtown. The project, spearheaded by WCCC PD Mike Karolyi, is the sixth such effort to benefit local causes.
Editor’s $0.02: WCCC GM is a longtime friend and SMRN subscriber. Rare among large-market operators, Boyd and his crew focus on local—the communities, the listeners, and especially the advertisers. WCCC performs well in the ratings, but as a result of Boyd’s “small market” mindset (high praise!), the station’s revenues are the envy of even the top dogs in the market.
