“We’re so grateful to FOX Sports for hosting this radiothon once again in support of veterans and their families,” said Bill Lawson, national president of Paralyzed Veterans of America. “Without the generous support of companies like FOX Sports we would not be able to provide these vital programs and services to veterans free of charge. We encourage everyone to tune in to the broadcast and show their support for our injured veterans.”
Anyone not in the Los Angeles listening area can tune in online at the radio station’s website at www.am570radio.com. The station is also available on mobile devices through the iHeartRadio app.
“This is has always been our opportunity to give back to our family members, friends, neighbors and fellow Americans who have become paralyzed while fighting for our freedoms,” commented AM570 FOX Sports LA’s General Manager Don Martin. “This is our way of giving thanks for their ultimate sacrifice.”
