Secret Santa Radiothon brings hope to children at Hemby

On Thursday, Dec. 2, Beasley Media Group will be hosting the annual Secret Santa Radiothon for the patients at Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital. The Beasley Media Group stations – Kiss 95.1, Power 98, Country 103.7, K 104.7 and V 101.9 – will broadcast from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., sharing remarkable stories and encouraging listeners to become a Secret Santa during the holiday season through a donation to Hemby Children’s Hospital.


In the past, the Secret Santa Radiothon has been a resounding success. Last year – in what Beasley Media Group Charlotte Operations Manager John Reynolds called “an amazing day of local radio” – listeners gave more than $85,000 to support our youngest patients.
