Children’s Hospital Radiothon 2018

Thank you, East Tennessee, for donating $140,207 in just one day for East Tennessee Children’s Hospital!

Join us as we dedicate an entire day of radio to raising money for East Tennessee Children’s Hospital! Tune in to NewsTalk 98.7 from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. to hear stories about the many ways Children’s Hospital has impacted our community, including real-life patient stories. Money raised during the radiothon will help purchase the “Lifeline for Children’s Hospital,” a new intensive care transport ambulance.
