Neuhoff Media Decatur and Neuhoff Media Springfield stations teamed up to host the Taylorville Tornado Relief Radiothon the morning of December 4, 2018. With a strong push from the morning shows across the company, Neuhoff Media has raised $50,000 to help those affected by the tornados in Taylorville last weekend.
Saturday, December 1st, Taylorville took a direct hit from a tornado, damaging an estimated 100 buildings and injuring at least 25 people.
Neuhoff Media Springfield Operations Manager and WFMB Program Director, Josh Roberts, notes, “We are very fortunate to have our extended Neuhoff family in Decatur to team up with during this unfortunateevent. It’s important to both Neuhoff Media Springfield and Neuhoff Media Decatur to drive one of the Neuhoff core values of ‘Community.’”
Funds will be used to help feed displaced families and volunteers helping with the relief efforts. The first $10,000 donated were matched dollar for dollar. Monies could be donated online across the station websites and via phone bank with the United Way.
