College Radio Day marathon raises money for local charity

For the second consecutive year, Walker Polivka raises money for local charity during WGLZ’s annual College Radio Day celebration.  

“He’s only a second year announcer but he understands the power of the radio medium” says faculty advisor, Jeff Pfister.  In 2016 Walker accepted the advisor’s suggestion to not only host a 24-hour marathon but to secure sponsors for the special program.  

This year two local organizations, the Bellaire Eagles and the American Legion Post 52 will each split just over $2100.00 from Walker’s College Radio Day program sponsors. 

Walker’s program raised $1650.00 for charity in 2016.
