December 6, 2011

96.9 Boston Talks (WTKK-FM) and Michael Graham will host the 4th annual Fisher House Radio-thon on Thursday December 8th. The Radio-thon will take place from 7 am until 7 pm, with a dedicated seven hour broadcast (12pm-7pm) by Michael Graham to help raise money for Fisher House Boston, a home away from home for New England families of wounded and ill veterans.

The Fisher House Radio-thon will feature stories from the Fisher House of recovering residents and their families. In addition, Michael Graham will be joined on-air by Kenneth Fisher, Chairman and CEO of the Fisher House Foundation and other notable supporters of Fisher House, including Senator Scott Brown, Senator John Kerry, Actor Adam Baldwin, former Defense Secretary Don Rumsfeld, Fox News’s Anchor Bill O’Reilly, media personality Montel Williams, and many more. Individuals who wish to support and donate to the Fisher House during the Radio-thon should call 888-294-8560, Text “vet” to 20222 or visit www.969bostontalks.com.

Michael Graham, a lead advocate for Fisher House Boston says, “The brave men and women are coming home from Iraq this year, but the injuries they’ve endured will last a lifetime.” He adds, “They need and deserve a place like Fisher House when they come to West Roxbury for treatment. The best way to say “We’ll never forget your service” is to support Fisher House now and in the future.”

Funds raised from the 4th Annual Radio-thon will benefit the Fisher House. Fisher Houses enables family members to be close to their loved ones during hospitalization and gives them a safe, comfortable, home-like environment, making it easier for them to participate in the care and recovery of their loved ones.

“We appreciate all that WTKK and Michael Graham have done for Fisher House. Michael helped bring a Fisher House to Boston and is now helping us to support not only that house, but bless the next community in need,” said Kenneth Fisher. “He is a true friend of everyone who serves and has served. We share a tremendous respect for our service members and their families. We are humbled by the tremendous generosity of WTKK listeners.”

Michael Graham can now be heard daily on 96.9 Boston Talks, WTKK-FM from 3PM-7PM.
