Join Us For The 26th Annual Radiothon To End Child Abuse


The annual 24 hour Radiothon To End Child Abuse will be broadcast on our Brainerd area Hubbard radio stations from noon on Thursday December 5th until noon on Friday, December 6th.

The Radiothon can be heard on 106.7 WJJY,  B93.3,  COOL 103.5 and 107.5 The Power Loon.

We will be partnering, as usual, with The Child Abuse Prevention Councils of Aitkin, Morrison and Cass Counties and the Crow Wing County Child Protection Team.  The rosters of these organizations include members of the law enforcement and legal communities, social services, medical professionals, educators and other concerned citizens.  Their mission is to break the cycle of abuse which plagues far too many families and to raise public awareness of a problem which negatively impacts communities everywhere.  It’s all about prevention and, when necessary, intervention. You’ll be hearing from many of these dedicated individuals throughout the course of The Radiothon.

Our listeners have pledged over $1.5 million to the “cause of kids” over the past 25 years. That’s a whole lot of sharing and caring. The sum of your generosity overwhelms us each and every year.

We look forward to your monetary call-in pledge of support during this year’s Radiothon.  And, don’t forget, that you can also contribute by making bids on a tremendous selection of Radiothon Auction goods and services, all of which have been donated by local businesses and individuals. Those auction items will be posted on during the 24 hours of the broadcast. (Click on the Radiothon headphones) Your pledge can be dedicated to a specific county.

Stop out and see us.  Our Radiothon team will be broadcasting live from Brainerd/Baxter’s Westgate Mall from noon until 7:00pm on Thursday, December 5th and again from 6:00am until noon on Friday the 6th.

Oh, one more thing.  The voice of WJJY and B93.3’s Tess Taylor will be raised again in a joyous rendering of a yet to be determined Christmas carol. It’s a Radiothon tradition which always reminds us that enthusiasm can indeed triumph over minor considerations like pitch and sense of rhythm.
