Beasley Media Group is proud to support the Red Cross and the thousands of staff and volunteers working hard to help those who have been impacted by Hurricane Ian. This morning, The Mike & Carla Morning Show dedicated a couple of hours to help raise awareness and hoping listeners would take the time to donate $10 to the Red Cross as they assist those that need it most in the Southwest area of Florida!
It’s not odd that we all know someone in that area that has been affected by Hurricane Ian and who’s life has been left in shambles in it’s wake of destruction. No power, no water, the flooding…the people of Southwest Florida continue to re-build and basically start over each and everyday for the past week or so.
This morning, The M&C Morning Show talked to a few people in that area that gave us a little insight to what it’s been like there for the past few days, what each day holds for those re-building and how we can help.
The M&C Morning Show had the chance to talk with Caroline Beasley, the CEO of The Beasley Media Group…and life long resident of Southwest Florida. Talking about the devastation to the area and the needs trying to be fulfilled by the Red Cross. We were also able to talk about the importance of radio in the area during this time, being “live & local” passing along important safety information to listeners and the incredible job the staff has been doing at many of the Beasley stations in the area.
Gina Birch is the morning show host on Sunny 106.3 in For Myers and has lived in that area for quite a long time…and has been on the air through this whole time. Giving out helpful info for those listening, taking calls and just giving her listeners some sort of relief and comfort each and every morning despite the devastation.
We also talked to Denyse Mesnik, born and raised in Naples, Florida, who has been through this before, but it’s never been this bad. It’s nothing new to have wind, rain, even a bit of flooding as a result of a hurricane that might miss the area…but hitting Naples and Fort Myers head on was something a lot of people were not prepared for. The storm surge came in much higher and a lot quicker than expected!
If you’re looking for a first hand account, please take the time to listen to each visit and if you can, make your $10 donation to the Red Cross…and we thank you!
