The Charleston Radio Group believes local media has the power to positively affect its community. From our charitable efforts, to the thousands of dollars in marketing we gave to area businesses to assist during the COVID-19 pandemic, the six radio stations of Charleston Radio Group are committed to helping Charleston and its surrounding communities. Which is why we’re excited to partner with the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital & Pearl Tourville Women’s Pavilion to raise funds that are needed now more than ever.
Throughout the year, our brands will engage and activate the listenership of our six diverse music formats to participate in hospital fundraising events. And, for two days in February, share the stories of patients and hospital workers to raise money directly in a radiothon across all stations.
