Cumulus Media’s Savannah Radio Stations Raise $101,678 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital During Annual Two-Day St. Jude Radiothon

SAVANNAH, GA – March 13, 2023 — Cumulus Media (NASDAQ: CMLS) announces that Cumulus Savannah radio stations Magic 103.9/WTYB-FM (Urban CHR), KIX96/WJCL-FM (Country), and I-95/WIXV-FM (Classic Rock) raised $101,678 for children’s cancer treatment and research through the annual St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Radiothon. The two-day on-air and online fundraiser was held on the popular radio stations on Thursday and Friday, March 2nd and 3rd, 2023, and supported the lifesaving mission of St. Jude that no child should die in the dawn of life.

The three popular stations broadcasted live from Cumulus Savannah studios and on social media through live stream, with special guests, interviews and more to support the kids of St. Jude. All funds raised by the Radiothon will go directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and will support St. Jude patients and families who never receive a bill from St. Jude for the cost of treatment, travel, housing, or food. At St. Jude, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion, or a family’s ability to pay. Since St. Jude opened its doors in 1962, the survival rate for childhood cancer has risen from 20% to more than 80% today.

Title sponsor for the event was OC Welch Ford-Lincoln, with Dyess Air & Plumbing sponsoring phone banks, Harbor Mortgage Company sponsoring the toteboard, Sylvan Learning of Savannah sponsoring the ABCs of Cancer, MacAljon sponsoring the Giggle Breaks, and Savannah Harley Davidson sponsoring the virtual tour.

DJ Rax, Operations Manager, Cumulus Savannah, said: “It’s always our pleasure every year to open up our airwaves for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This year, Cumulus Savannah radio stations WIXV, WJCL, and WTYB joined forces to raise $101,678. We appreciate our listeners’ and sponsors’ tremendous generosity and definitely look forward to our radiothon coming up next year.”
