Every child who walks into Texas Children’s Hospital has a story to tell. In December 2017, some of these brave, hopeful kids shared theirs with our friends at Cox Media Group (CMG) Houston and Entercom Communications.
CMG stations The New 93Q, Country Legends 97.1 and Houston’s Eagle 106.9 & 107.5 helped Texas Children’s Hospital reach Houstonians via the airwaves to raise over $420,000 during the 14th annual Radiothon from Dec. 1 through 31, 2017. The month-long campaign featured a Hero of the Day highlighting a different Texas Children’s Hospital patient every day on the radio stations.
Entercom Communications Spanish Pop radio station Mega 101 hosted their 7th annual Radiothon on December 7th & 8th. The radio team, hosted by morning show “Mega en Tus Mananas” Gerry, Cindy and Valentin, as well as afternoon hosts Liz and Lorena and the donors once again made the Radiothon a complete success raising over $400,000.
Texas Children’s Hospital truly appreciates the significant efforts made by all of our radio partners and their followers along with the commitment they demonstrate by helping sick kids in our community.

Texas Children's Hospital is proud to be the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for the Houston and surrounding area.
