WTKK-FM in Boston, Mass., wrapped up the year with a radiothon and online auction in support of Fisher House Boston, a home for families of wounded and ill veterans. In total, the station and its listeners helped to raise more than $200,000 for the 20-suite facility at the West Roxbury VA Hospital, which is slated to open its doors in the fall. The Fisher House will provide veterans recovering from serious injuries and their families a supportive place to heal at no charge. During the three-hour radiothon, the community heard stories from troops and their families, as well as supporters of Fisher House, including Colin Powell and Oliver North. “Our troops have sacrificed so much for us, and WTKK is honored and privileged to show our support.” said WTKK talk host Michael Graham, who spearheaded the radiothon and has traveled to Iraq, Kuwait and Germany in support of our military.
