By April 4, 2019 In the News

Thank you to everyone who supported our Make 12 Hours Count Radio Thon!

We asked- and Maine answered the call to support Maine’s veterans!

In 12 hours on WGAN Radio $63,160 was raised to support Maine’s military families- and donations are still coming in!

The fourth annual Veterans Count Radiothon was hosted on Portland Radio Group’s WGAN Newsradio (AM 560 and FM 105.5) with the added front line support of 101.9 WPOR, Maine’s #1  Country Station as well as but pulling from the promotional power of all the group’s stations.  New this year, the Radio Thon received promotional support from WABI helping to engage supporters from all over the state.

“News Radio WGAN is very proud to help those of who have given so much for us.”  Jeff Pierce, Operations Manager for Portland Radio Group said. “All of our Portland stations supported this effort and the entire team deserves a pat on the back for helping and thanks to Veterans Count for what they do and allowing us to help.”
