Topic: Disaster Relief and Recovery

WGNA-FM Albany Morning Team quickly raised $30,000 for Irene victims. Townsquare Media’s WGNA-FM Albany morning hosts Sean McMaster and Richie Phillips held a 24 hour radiothon at a local mall in addition to collecting donations online. Despite a lack of corporate matching dollars, they raised more than $30,000, tripling the original goal, with contributions ranging in size from $1 to $2,500. WGNA-FM donated the money to the Red Cross of Northeastern New York to aid their effort in providing relief to victims of Hurricane Irene.
