Hubbard Radio’s KSTP-FM St. Paul recently honored a local high school student, Zach Sobiech, who died a year ago from cancer. Before Zach passed away, he wrote a song called "Clouds," which was professionally produced and licensed through BMI. In December, KSTP-FM morning hosts Ryan and Shannon invited listeners to the Mall of America to sing "Clouds" together and remember Zach. More than 5,000 people attended the event. Video of the gathering has been viewed over 9 million times on YouTube, and “Clouds” has been downloaded more than 300,000 times on iTunes. After Zach’s medical expenses, all proceeds from the song downloads have gone into a research fund for Zach’s form of cancer.
