Nashville's heritage Top 40 station, 1075 The River has been enriching
the lives of listeners in the Nashville area for over 15 years. The true
power of the radio station is not in the fun we have, the number of songs
we play or the prizes we award; it's in the ways we're able to give back
to our community and affect people's lives in a positive way. In 2010,
107.5 The River listeners helped raise over $500,000 for multiple charities
in the Middle Tennessee area. In May of 2010, Middle Tennessee suffered
devastating damage due to flooding. Clear Channel Radio Nashville suspended
all regular programming for one day to address the immediate needs of
our listeners. We also partner yearly with Children's Miracle Network
for "The River Hope Radiothon" supporting the Monroe Carell
Jr. Children's Hospital. The funds raised stay in Middle Tennessee to
support research for children. 107.5 The River donated an additional $400,000
in airtime and 750 staff hours to causes and organizations in the community.
Further, 107.5 The River aired 239 public service announcements, 89 hours
of no-charge broadcasting, 52 hours of public affairs programming, 18,383
promotional announcements and 993 hours of news and weather."
