BURBANK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/Charity?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#Charitylt;/agt;–LBI Media, the third largest Spanish-language broadcasting company in
the U.S., announced today that its three leading radio stations in
Houston raised a grand total of $436,911.00 for Children’s Miracle
Network Hospitals®.

This year marks the five year partnership with Children’s Miracle
Network Hospitals®, in which LBI Media radio
properties La Raza KTJM 98.5/103.3 FM, El Norte KQQK 107.9 and La
Ranchera KEYH 850 AM/101.7 FM raised over $400,000.00 during a two-day
radiothon that recently took place. Supported by Hispanic radio
listeners in the greater Houston Metro area, the money raised this year
will continue supporting low-income families that seek medical care at
the Texas Children’s Hospital.

For the past five years, during a two-day radiothon, LBI Media’s radio
station DJs and personalities have committed to use their time, talent
and the power of their radio platform to create awareness for critical
treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and
charitable care for underserved, low-income children who require
critical medical attention. The money raised will continue to benefit
the Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston. Since 2015, LBI Media’s radio
stations in Houston have raised a cumulative total of over $2.1 million
during the radiothon from over 2,700 Hispanic radio listeners for the
charitable organization.

“We are extremely proud of our partnership with the Children’s Miracle
Network and the wonderful work they do on behalf of low-income families
in our community, who are in need of financial support for critical
medical services. We thank our Hispanic radio listeners for once again
stepping up to the plate and collectively raising over $400,000 for this
great charity. The Latino community understands the importance of giving
back and helping those that are in need. At LBI Media, we are proud to
not only have this as one of our core values, but also to lend our
broadcasting platform to ensure we continue supporting social causes of
this nature,” stated Benny Herzog, manager, national radio sales, LBI
Media, based in Houston.

“LBI Media has been a terrific partner for Children’s Miracle Network
and the Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston. To date, they have helped
us raise over $2 Million to help heal kids in and around Houston. These
funds have helped Children’s Miracle Network provide much needed
equipment, medications, and research for many underprivileged children
and their families. A great number of these are Hispanic families that
would otherwise not be able to afford this life saving care and
attention made possible through the support of LBI Media’s radio and TV
stations,” stated Danny Garcia, director, Hispanic Programs, Children’s
Miracle Network Hospitals®.
