Final Day of Radiothon Friday
Story Updated: Nov 1, 2012
Friday would be a good day to turn your radio on.
"The Border," (106.7) broadcasts the last day of the Children's Miracle Network of Northern New York "radiothon" from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday.
Broadcaster Johnny Spezzano hosts the radiothon - last year, the fund-raiser delivered more than $120,000 to CMN, and Spezzano hopes to raise more this year.
CMN of Northern New York buys hospital equipment that helps children, and funds are also given directly to families in need.
Spezzano says the stories those families tell - both locally and nationally - keep him returning to the microphone each year to raise funds.
The phone number to pledge Friday is 755-KIDS, (5437).
