Southern System Hosts Annual Homecoming Radiothon
The 2011 Southern University System Annual Radiothon launched today, with the annual homecoming fundraiser being held from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. at 650 Wooddale Boulevard and aired live on three stations powered by Cumulus Broadcasting – KQXL 106.5 FM, WEMX 94.1 FM, and WXOK 1460 AM.
The theme for this year’s Radiothon, “Save Our Southern,” is in sync with the alumni public relations campaign, both having the same goal of providing overall support for the University System. Listeners may call in to make pledges during the 12-hour live broadcast, or may log onto the Foundation’s website to make on-line donations (www.foundation.sus.edu). Donations may be earmarked to specific colleges, departments, or auxiliary programs, and proceeds will support scholarships, assistantships, and youth programs.
