National Radio Shows Create a Community to Support Those Affected by Hurricane Harvey


National Radio Shows Create a Community to Support Those Affected by Hurricane Harvey

The National Reach of Nearly 300 Radio Stations Brings the Devastation of Hurricane Harvey to a Personal Level to Encourage Support

REACH Media’s Tom Joyner, Rickey Smiley, Erica Campbell, Willie Moore Jr, Russ Parr, DL Hughley, Ed Lover and Darlene McCoy Create a National Conversation

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the daily reach of the top syndicated radio and streaming shows in America today created an opportunity to have everyone hear personal stories and create care in a way that's relevant to each listener. REACH Media’s syndicated shows provided interviews with those affected as well as experts from the region to inform those listeners thousands of miles away on what they could do to impact others just like them. The following is a sampling of focus and commitment that took place:
