Fisher House Foundation Awards Clear Channel With One Of Its Highest Honors, The Patriot Award

 

Washington, D.C.  – September 14, 2011 – Fisher House Foundation, which constructs comfort homes to provide free, temporary housing to the families of service members needing medical care, recently presented its Patriot Award to Clear Channel Radio, in recognition of its ongoing support of the Fisher House mission.

 

Clear Channel, the leading media company in America with a greater reach than any radio or television outlet, has collectively raised nearly $1 million for Fisher House over the past two years, the centerpiece of which is its company-wide Veterans Day initiative, a day-long awareness and fundraising effort.  Clear Channel has also aired public service announcements, interviews, on-site broadcasts from Fisher Houses and website content, with media exposure valued at more than $5 million.

 

“All of us at Clear Channel are proud of our commitment to the Fisher House and the many military families they serve.  Though we are a network of 850 radio stations across the United States, we pride ourselves on our local involvement,” said Clay Hunnicutt, Senior Vice President, Programming, Clear Channel Radio, who accepted the award.  “It is important to us that we're strong community partners in each of the 150 markets where our stations are located.  Our partnership with the Fisher House allows Clear Channel to make a difference in the lives of veteran families who live, work and play in our station’s neighborhoods.”

 

The Patriot Award was established in 2002 as a means to recognize individuals and organizations that have been exceptionally supportive of our military families.

 

“My uncle Zachary was honored with many titles during the course of his lifetime, but none were more important to him than that of ‘Patriot,’” said Ken Fisher, Chairman and CEO of Fisher House Foundation. “We’re grateful to Clear Channel for the work they’ve done on behalf of our military families.”
