Star 94 matches 2009 total in radiothon for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta

Star 94 raised $560,212 last week for the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, slightly more than in 2009.

In eight years, Star 94 has raised more than $7.7 million for the hospital.

Here’s what the new program director Scott Lindy had to say in an email Monday:

That’s a little higher than last year and an amazing amount of money considering the down economy, dozens of GA banks failing and having our state above the national average in unemployment. When times are tough Star listeners still find a way to give over half a million dollars to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Impressive.

2010-star-94 careathonI’ve been tracking pledge totals since 2004:

2004: $1.167 million.
2005: $1.2 million
2006: $1,215,834
2007: $1,212,437
2008: $825,284
2009: $558,000
2010: $560,000

The station’s falling ratings and a rough economy have impacted fund-raising the past couple of years.

You can always donate at the hospital here.

in 6 yrs Star 94 with EWWW and Icky went from 1.1Mill to just over 560K.
Well, when you play today’s icky sounds, don’t expect people to hang around and listen to your station. Today’s music is bad, boring and sounds the same. Some singers sound like they are constipated. Others sound like the screaming car commercial and others sound like they are in need of throat surgery. The music industry stinks today. And with groups charging a car payment or more for one show, they can expect empty seats. The music industry is dying a slow death.
