Radiothon to broadcast miracles for Batson
Radio stations from across central Mississippi will join forces for the 13th annual Mississippi Miracles Radiothon from 6 a.m.-7 p.m. Wednesday-Friday, Feb. 26-28, to benefit the Batson Children's Hospital.
Returning to the radiothon are Jackson station Jack FM and Vicksburg stations KHits and River 101. These stations, along with Jackson's Y101.7, US 96.3 and Mix 98.7, will broadcast live from the Children's Hospital lobby. Meridian stations 97 OKK, Kiss 104.1, Q101, and 105.7 the Beat will broadcast from Meridian.
DJs will interview current and former patients with their families and the hospital staff who care for them, and will ask listeners to call in pledges to benefit the hospital. Donated money will be used to fund equipment, research and programs that ensure the hospital will be able to provide the most advanced level of medical care for Mississippi's children.
To make a donation, call 4-KIDS (5437).
