Amidst press that the company is headed towards bankruptcy by year’s end, I don’t get a lot of press releases from other radio corporations who are doing things for the community. It doesn’t mean they aren’t doing anything, we just don’t get press releases announcing it from them so Kudos to CC.
iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) Radio continues to support Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity, with its national campaign. Celebrities such as Ryan Seacrest, Nick Lachey, Rob Thomas and Dhani Jones have recorded public service announcements (PSAs) to support Feeding America and air on iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) Radio stations nationwide this summer.
The charity’s Summer Food Program is a campaign dedicated to letting families in need know about free summer lunches for children at local schools. The Ad Council and Feeding America provided PSAs for iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) Radio to air in 22 targeted markets across the country.
John Hogan, iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) Radio President and CEO, and Lisa Dollinger, Chief Communications Officer, of iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel), along with Peggy Conlon, Ad Council President and CEO, and James Baumann, Senior Vice President, National Accounts & Media Marketing, of the Ad Council, volunteered at the San Antonio Food Bank this afternoon. San Antonio has the largest summer feeding program for children in the country, feeding 10,200 hungry children a day throughout the summer.
iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) was also instrumental in the success of Feeding America’s recent Stamp Out Hunger! national food collection, sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers. The organization raised an all-time record of over 73.4 million pounds of food during their May 9th collection drive. iHeartmedia (formerly Clear Channel) radio stations ran over 35,000 15-second PSAs voiced by Ryan Seacrest to support the event.
