POTW: It's All About the Kids (2009)

April 10, 2009 by

UTICA-ROME -- "It's all about the kids."  Those five, simple words are the unofficial motto behind everything that happens at Lite 98.7 (WLZW)'s annual radiothon to benefit the Children's Miracle Network.

The on-air team is accompanied by a big mess of music logs, traffic logs, interview schedules, cables, microphones and more... all part of what it takes to pull off a live two-day remote radiothon.

This year's radiothon, held two weeks ago, raised more than $24,400 to help local children and their families.  This is just one of several photos the WLZW team snapped during the radiothon... but you won't find them on the station website; they're exclusively posted on the station's Twitter feed.
