Univision Radio Set to Host its 14th Consecutive Spanish-Language Radiothon Benefiting St. Jude

Univision Radio will participate in the Promesa y Esperanza (Promise and Hope) radiothon on February 3rd and 4th, benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the nation’s top children’s cancer hospital, for the 14th consecutive year.

Univision Radio, the leading Spanish-language radio group in the United States, will transmit more than 30 hours of programming dedicated to raising funds for St. Jude on its stations in cities across the country, including Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Dallas, New York and Puerto Rico.

“The support of Univision Radio throughout the years has been remarkable. Thanks to the efforts and commitment of Univision’s staff and the generosity of its listeners, we anticipate another successful radiothon that will help St. Jude give hope to kids in communities everywhere who are battling childhood cancer and other deadly diseases,” said Richard C. Shadyac Jr., CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising organization of St. Jude.

Since opening in 1962, St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and around the world. From public donations such as the Promesa y Esperanza radiothon, St. Jude researchers and doctors are able to share medical discoveries around the world, including several Latin American countries, to help increase survival rates for children with cancer and other catastrophic illnesses.
