NCAB Hosts Celebration for Vietnam Vets (WNKS-FM)

Topic: Youth-Focused Initiatives

CBS Radio’s WNKS-FM Charlotte recently changed its name to "Victoria 95.1 FM" for a day to honor Victoria Waters. Victoria is a local five year-old girl who was born premature and has been fighting for her life ever since. WNKS-FM’s John Reynold’s noted, "Not only are we naming the station after her for a day in celebration of her strength and courage, but this day is about our listeners who will be able to give back to Levine Children’s Hospital, which has given so much to this community." WNKS-FM’s listeners were invited to make song requests throughout the day in exchange for a donation to the local hospital. In just 12 hours, the station raised more than $18,000.
