“Even in one of the toughest years most of us have experienced, WAVY was On Your Side, and helped so many people,” said Jason Ruel, WAVY’s promotion producer.
Carol Ward, general manager of WAVY and WVBT said, “It is an incredible asset to have these professionals on our side.” According to Ward: “WAVY is Hampton Roads‘ leading source for news, weather, traffic and sports and it is no doubt due to the daily contribution of Don Roberts, Don Slater and Bruce Rader.”
The 10 On Your Side Coats for Families drive, now in its 27th year, teams up with local businesses, non-profits, churches, Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast, and Entercom Radio group to make the mission possible.
WAVY and WVBT, Nexstar’s NBC and Fox affiliate respectively in Portsmouth, Virginia, are launching their 10 On Your Side Operation School Supplies initiative tomorrow. Last year, more than 80,000 items made their way to 12 school districts across the area.
WAVY and WVBT, Nexstar’s NBC and Fox affiliates in Portsmouth, Va., started a relief fund to benefit the victims and families of those killed and wounded in the attack. “10 On Your Side’s mission, at the core, is to be there for our community and viewers,” said Carol Ward, WAVY’s general manager.
