GM Boston Stations Suspend On Air Contesting, Donate Money to Fund
April 17, 2013
In the wake of the recent tragedy, Greater Media has suspended all on-air listener contesting for the remainder of this week on its Boston-based stations, including HOT 96.9/ WBQT-FM, Country 102.5/WKLB-FM, MAGIC 106.7/WMJX-FM, Radio 92.9/WBOS-FM and 105.7 WROR-FM and will be donating the money to THE ONE FUND BOSTON instead.
The new fund, announced by Boston mayor Tom Menino and Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick, has been created to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013.
“We discussed it with our team and Greater Media Boston Market Manager Rob Williams and felt that this was absolutely the appropriate thing to do in an effort to help all the individuals directly impacted by the tragic event that took place in our city,” said Director of Programming Cadillac Jack.
