Cumulus Media Networks and CMT have announced a special installment of CMT Radio Live with Cody Alan, to benefit victims from last week’s shooting in Colorado. Listeners will be encouraged to make contributions to the Colorado Organization for Victim Assistance, which is working to assist and comfort victims’ families. The show will air live from Aurora, CO tomorrow (Friday, July 27) from 6-11 pm/CT.
“Our hearts go out to the victims and their families. This is a senseless tragedy and we hope our efforts can help in some small way,” said John Dickey, co-Chief Operating Officer of Cumulus Media.
“Our audience struggles to find meaning in the aftermath of mayhem. Our goal is to reflect the support, strength and solidarity of our nationwide listeners who care deeply, and count on us to bring comfort and reassurance. Cody’s heartfelt style, and CMT’s stars will come through for us Friday night,” said Brian Philips, President of CMT.
The show will air on over 100 Cumulus country affiliates and other US radio stations, and artists Reba, Kix Brooks, Sara Evans, Toby Keith, John Rich, and Gloriana will call in to discuss the tragic event.
