Milwaukee Media Supports Houston

Former WGN-Radio GM Tom Langmyer's the man behind this fundraiser. From the RAMP Newsletter...

Relief efforts for all of those affected by the ongoing damage caused by the former Hurricane Harvey extend far beyond Texas. The fine folks at Scripps Milwaukee organized a fundraiser on Monday afternoon to collect much-needed funds for disaster relief. Staffers from WTMJ-TV (Today's TMJ4), News-Talk WTMJ-AM and WKTI (94.5 KTI Country) manned the phone bank from 4-7pm to collect donations for the American Red Cross.

"People in Wisconsin are looking for a way that they can help the victims of the hurricane," said Tom Langmyer, VP/GM for Scripps Radio in Milwaukee and VP of News/Talk/Sports for E.W. Scripps. "Using the power of local media we can combine our efforts to enable giving on a large scale and truly make a difference to support the American Red Cross." And make a difference they did.

People helping people. This is the best of America in action.
