Clear Channel Promotes Special Olympics

by Jamie Scovel.

Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Chicago, one of the largest Chicago radio broadcasters with more than 5 million weekly radio listeners, has selected Special Olympics Illinois as one of the benefiting non-profit organizations included in the Clear Channel Communities initiative.

For the month of September,  Clear Channel Chicago will donate significant on air and digital airtime across its cluster of seven stations [107.5 WGCI-FM, 103.5 KISS FM, V103, Inspiration 1390AM, 95.5 El Patrón, 97.5 ESPN Deportes and 93.9 MYfm] to Special Olympics Illinois.

The Chicago Sky’s Elena Delle Donne, Chicago White Sox’s third baseman Conor Gillaspie, Chicago Fire’s Benji Joya and Blackhawk’s Brandon Saad have all lent their voices to public service announcements that urge listeners to realize the power of sports.

Special Olympics Illinois strives to deliver high-quality training and competition in an inclusive culture that stresses athletic excellence, rewards determination, emphasizes health and celebrates achievement. The organization currently serves about 10 percent of those eligible to participate and is always working to increase this reach.

Special Olympics Illinois is thrilled to have this opportunity to spread awareness of all we do.
