BURBANK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Estrella Media, Inc., one of the nation’s leading Hispanic media companies, announced today that it will hold its sixth annual Radiothon in partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® (CMN) for the benefit of the Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston.
This year the two-day Radiothon will take place on September 10 and 11, and the theme will center around the CMN “Kid’s Can’t Wait” campaign, which highlights the increased need during the pandemic.
The Radiothon takes place annually and is supported entirely by Hispanic radio listeners in the greater Houston Metro area. To donate, radio listeners will have the opportunity to call in to a dedicated line or text the word Estrella to 51555. The money raised will continue supporting low-income families who seek medical care at the Texas Children’s Hospital.
Estrella Media radio properties La Raza KTJM 98.5/103.3 FM, El Norte KQQK 107.9 and La Ranchera KEYH 850 AM/101.7 FM have raised a cumulative total of over $2 million since 2015. For the past five years, during the two-day Radiothon, Estrella Media’s Houston radio stations, along with their DJ's and personalities, have committed their time, talent, and the power of their radio, digital and social media platforms to create awareness for critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care for underserved, low-income children who require critical medical attention.
“We are proud to support the work of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® and the essential services Texas Children’s Hospital provides to underserved and low income Houston residents,” stated Wynette Ortiz, director of sales for Estrella Media in Houston. “Every year we look forward to doing our part in raising much needed funds for the services these organizations provide.
