Talk Radio Broadcasts 13th Annual Care-a-Thon July 25 & 26


Benefiting the Aflac Cancer Center of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta

Each year, the lives of children are impacted through talk radio. For 37 hours on July 25 and 26, 95.5 FM and AM 750 News/Talk WSB listeners will have the opportunity to provide hope for children with cancer and blood disorders.   Scott Slade, host of “Atlanta Morning News,” and fellow on-air personality Clark Howard will broadcast the thirteenth annual WSB Care-a-Thon live from the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Last year’s Care-a-Thon raised more than $1.5 million for research and programs to help children at the Aflac Cancer Center, one of the top ranked and largest childhood cancer and hematology programs in the US. 
 

From 5 a.m. July 25 until 6 p.m. on July 26, listeners will hear incredible stories of the children and families who have been impacted by the Aflac Cancer Center. The Care-a-Thon will also feature special guests and give listeners the opportunity to make donations and participate in one-of-a-kind experiences. 

During the broadcast, listeners can tune in to 95.5 FM and AM 750 News/Talk WSB, www.wsbradio.com, call 888-750-2772 or visit www.choa.org/careathon to donate to the Aflac Cancer Center and read patient stories.  Information and donation opportunities will also be available at www.facebook.com/AflacCancerCenter.

Neal Boortz, former on-air personality, has remained committed to the News/Talk WSB Care-a-Thon for over ten years. While 2012 was his final year on-air, WSB and the Aflac Cancer are excited to welcome back Boortz for this special event!
