Cumulus Media’s Newstalk KBOI and the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Once Again Break Records in “Idaho’s Largest Toy Drive,” an Annual 12-Day Holiday Toy Drive Benefiting Toys for Tots

BOISE, ID – December 22, 2023 — Cumulus Media (NASDAQ: CMLS) announces that Newstalk KBOI 93.1 FM/670 AM in Boise, ID, and the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve broke records once again for their annual holiday toy drive – the aptly named “Idaho’s Largest Toy Drive” – benefiting Toys for Tots in Boise and children in Idaho, Eastern Oregon, and Northern Nevada. In its seventh year, over the course of the 12-day event, Newstalk KBOI collected more than 34,257 donated toys, more than 200 bicycles and raised $63,336 in cash donations for Toys for Tots. “Idaho’s Largest Toy Drive” was held at the Meridian Crossroads Shopping Center in Meridian, ID, from November 24th through December 5th.

Nate Shelman, Program Director, Newstalk KBOI, said: “It is truly amazing to see the audience, station partners and other businesses come out, in force, year after year. To think, in the past seven years, this audience has filled almost twenty 53-foot trailers. Each toy, book and bike bring Christmas to a kid and a family in need and lets them know we support them.”

First Sergeant Kaleb Wagy, 4th Marine Division, 4th LAR Battalion Company C, said: “This year’s “Idaho’s Largest Toy Drive” accounted for more than half of the toys collected in this year’s campaign. Because of this effort, Charlie Co., was able to help more than 15,000 kids and families in the Treasure Valley. We are already looking forward to next year!”
