CBS RadioCBS Radio’s KYKY-FM St. Louis (Y98) hosted an on-air request-a-thon on 5/24.  The Phillips and Company Morning Show played listener requests for donations benefiting the American Red Cross effort for Moore, Oklahoma, raising $33,670.  The President of Lion’s Choice, a local fast-food chain, called in at the end of the 14-hour broadcast to match every donation, boosting the total to $67,340.

Says Guy Phillips from the Phillips and Company: “It’s easy to underestimate the power of caring, but this city’s generosity touches me personally every time we ask for their help.  I can’t thank our listeners enough for their generosity!  Now, where are our roast beef sandwiches?”

The Phillips & Company Morning Show is made up of Guy Phillips and show members Courtney Landrum, Jen Myers, and Kevin “the Intern”.  The group has been together for the past 8 years bringing entertainment to listeners each weekday morning from 5:30a – 10a.
