Lethbridge: Radio-a-thon raises over $234K

ARTICLES, Net News 0

It’s not every day that you see all the local radio stations working together but when they do, it’s a beautiful thing.

Since the inaugural event eight years ago, the Chinook Regional Hospital Foundation has raised more than $1.5 million through the Care from the Heart Day Radio-a-thon.

“That’s a huge amount of money and all of that stays right here for the benefit of our hospital,” said Jason VandenHoek, executive director of the CRH Foundation.

On Thursday, 98.1 The Bridge, 94.1 CJOC, 106.7 Rock, Kiss 107.7 and Country 95.5 broadcast live from the hospital’s atrium from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“It’s a very unique initiative really to this city,” said VandenHoek. “The fact that we can get all six local radio stations working together to kind of help one cause – that being the hospital – that’s pretty exciting and it’s kind of unheard of in other markets, so we’re really proud of that.”

In the past year, the foundation has disbursed more than $1.3 million towards state-of-the-art health-care equipment and the goal for this year’s event was to raise $230,000.

Renovations are underway to help improve the mental health area and VandenHoek noted funds from this year’s event will be used to help with the renovation costs.

“We just think it’s a really important piece of our hospital right now that needs some attention, so we’re happy to be able to do that.”

By Thursday night, more than $234,000 had been raised for the CRH Foundation.

“We’re so lucky to have such a generous community and business community. Each year we’re surprised and really humbled by the folks that step up and help us,” said VandenHoek. “We wouldn’t do this every year if we didn’t think our community wanted to support the hospital and we just thank everybody for giving.”

Donations for the CRH Foundation are accepted all year at www.crhfoundation.ca. Donations for Care from the Heart will be accepted online for the next few days or by calling the office at 403-388-6001.

Fate of College Radio Charts Uncertain at CMJ After Almost 40 Years

Uncategorized 0

For the second week in a row, the charts haven’t been published. Will they follow the CMJ Music Marathon into oblivion?

One of the remaining bastions of the college-rock era has fallen silent, at least for now. For the second week in a row, CMJ has not published its weekly college radio charts, calling into question the fate of an institution that has tracked the music played by college stations around the country since 1978. No date has been set for when the venerable—and, once, invaluable—charts will resume.

Adam Klein, who owns CMJ through his Abaculi Media, has not responded to Pitchfork’s requests for comment on the matter. The charts typically go out on Tuesday afternoons. On Tuesday, February 7, in an email to radio promoters and publicists obtained by Pitchfork, Klein said the charts might resume by the end of last week, and would “definitely” be back this week. On Tuesday, February 14, in another email viewed by Pitchfork, Klein told the CMJ community, “There will not be charts this week and I will let you know where we stand on timing before the end of the week.”

The chart hiatus is just the latest in a series of setbacks for CMJ. The last-known remaining employee, Lisa Hresko, recently took a new job with indie-label trade group A2IM. And last year’s lack of a CMJ Music Marathon, for the first time in the event’s 35-year-history, came despite Klein’s assurance it “absolutely” would happen in 2016.

Here is Klein’s February 7 email to radio promoters:
