Adams Radio Group to Participate in Nationwide Feeding America Radiothon

Adams Radio Group of Salisbury-Ocean City will join thousands of other radio stations across the country in participating in the Radio Cares Emergency Radiothon, benefiting Feeding America.

OC104, 93.5 The Beach, US 98.5, Big 107.7 and Kool Oldies 104.3 and 105.1 will dedicate programming on Thursday, April 30 to requesting donations and highlighting food insecurity and shortages on Delmarva and across the nation.

Adams Radio Group’s CEO Ron Stone is the brainchild of the radiothon, which now has up to 8,000 participating stations. Stone said “I watched the lines of cars in San Antonio… there to get food that they no doubt would have had a paycheck two weeks previous and taken to a grocery store to buy food. That’s when I knew radio had to help.”

Johnette Cochran, General Manager of Adams Radio Group of Delmarva says “This is something like never before. COVID-19 is pushing new people into poverty and our mission is to do more when facing a hardship. I’m so proud to be part of the radio industry and to see all the radio stations across the United States coming together as one and making this radiothon happen for Feeding America.”

“Our on-air personalities will be encouraging our listeners to visit our stations’ websites to make donations to Feeding America. With the though of thousands of families who may not be able to put food on the table during this pandemic.” said Robert “Rob Jay” Johnson, Adams Radio Group of Delmarva’s Operations Manager. He continued “We will also direct our listeners to our Facebook pages where they’ll find more information and a link to make their donations.”

As over 60 million Americans deal with food insecurity and hunger, Feeding America is serving as an integral source for hunger relief, with over 200 food banks nationwide.

During the radiothon, we’ll speak with representatives of local Feeding America affiliates the Food Bank of Delaware and the Maryland Food Bank.
