Announcers from all three Harvard stations will be broadcasting from Hill Tower two the next two days for the Annual Children’s Hospital Radiothon.
For the 15th year, money will be raised over the next two days for the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital, which is now more than 70 per-cent complete.
Jason Huschi, Harvard Broadcasting Regina’s General Manager, says even though the construction phase will soon be complete, it’s vital to keep the money coming in for future needs and upgrades.
“Well certainly once the hospital’s built, it has to be staffed with the best-quality staff, and it needs some of the best-quality and the most up-to-date equipment, and in a lot of cases, the best equipment brings the most-qualified staff.”
Huschi says it’s been very rewarding over the years seeing the money from Radiothon contribute to a building that is now one step away from reality.
“15 years ago it was a dream, over the course of the last 15 years we’ve seen some great gains, and some great advances. The building is being built, we’re almost to the reality of an opening, let’s keep it going.”
