Topic: Disaster Relief and Recovery

Young Broadcasting’s KWQC-TV Davenport, Iowa, raised more than $38,000 for the American Red Cross’ relief efforts in Moore, Okla. Six radio stations owned by the Clear Channel Radio Group partnered with KWQC-TV in requesting donations through broadcast and social media outlets. "The kindness of the Quad Cities never ceases to amaze me," said Ken Freedman, vice president and general manager of KWQC. Last fall, KWQC received similar levels of support in fundraising following Hurricane Sandy.
