Cumulus Media Partners With Vitalant Blood Donation for Successful Blood Drive in Albuquerque

ALBUQUERQUE, NM – February 8, 2024 — Cumulus Media (NASDAQ: CMLS) announces that Cumulus Albuquerque, in partnership with Vitalant Blood Donation, hosted a successful community blood drive on January 30, 2024, that drove donations of 114 pints of blood to the Albuquerque blood bank.

Cumulus Albuquerque’s seven radio stations promoted the drive to help meet this vital need in the community. All listeners that stopped by to “Give a Pint, Get a Pint,” received a pint of ice cream for donating a pint of blood, courtesy of Blue Bell Ice Cream. The goal for the blood drive was to collect 100 units of blood from 60 donors, and with the support of the community, 85 donors turned out to donate 114 units.

Drew Sharpless, Senior Account Manager, Vitalant, said: “Vitalant is grateful to all of our sponsors and donors who made this event such a huge success. Without them, our mission of saving lives through the gift of blood donation would not be possible. Because of you, life doesn’t stop.”

Jeff Berry, Vice President/Market Manager, Cumulus Albuquerque, said, “We are proud of our listeners’ overwhelming response to our first blood drive with Vitalant. This is such an important way for our radio stations to help meet the critical blood supply needs of New Mexico. We thank our listeners and partners for their generosity in helping us meet this significant need in Albuquerque.”
