WFSH/Atlanta (104.7 The Fish) morning hosts Kevin and Taylor along with Mac Powell did a pre- “Day of Healing” fundraiser that raised over $11,000 for CURE International.

Listeners were invited to an exclusive event; “Mac & Cheese with Mac Powell” for a $1000 donation.

Oh, no worries, Kevin and Mac won’t be cooking-it’s “Lobster Mac & Cheese” catered by the exclusive Capital Grille. The fundraiser started TODAY. 

KFNW/Fargo (Life 97.9) listeners partnered with the station and area businesses to successfully complete the Hope Notes event, which aimed to bring hope and encouragement to seniors living in assisted living facilities across the Red River Valley. 

From Feb. 1 to 26, Life 97.9 collected notes from listeners across the region. The original goal was to collect 200 notes, but the response was overwhelming, with over 500 notes received in total. The notes were delivered on Feb. 28, along with flower arrangements from Hope Blooms and cookies from Jen’s Bakery. 

“I truly think Hope Notes has been our most successful event yet,” said Elaina Bekkum, Life 97.9 listener engagement director. “Not just because we more than doubled our note goal, but because it connected so deeply with our listeners and the greater community. When the seniors received the cards from Hope Notes, they were overjoyed. I will never forget the smiles on their faces.” 

Life 97.9 is a part of the Northwestern Media network of University of Northwestern – St. Paul. Northwestern Media stations broadcast on 81 outlets across 11 states. 

Southern Gospel The LeFevre Quartet has made changes to their line up.

A new Christian internet station based in Dallas has launched. Owner Oxford Nordberg calls the station The Sunday Morning Drive and says listening experience is designed for all Christians young adults and mature ones. The Sunday Morning Drive was created with the intention of giving Christian Hip Hop artists a platform to share their music. Oxford hosts his own show called “The Ox in A Box Show” between 6:00 AM to 11:00 AM each morning.

Check out the new station HERE.
