“Radio Cares” campaign raises half a mil.

The initiative initiated by Adams Radio Group President Ron Stone is responsible for donating over $500,000 to Feeding America. To be more precise, $500,146 was raised in a single day—Thursday, April 30—by over 10,000 radio stations, capped by a $20,000 donation from Big Machine Records to get over the half-million dollar mark. That sum translates to five million meals for disadvantaged Americans. “I will be forever grateful to every broadcaster that made the decision to participate in this historic radiothon,” said Mr. Stone. “Together we did something that had never been done before in our 100-plus years, a nationwide radio event to raise money to help those who truly need our help.”
