Beginning Wednesday morning, Vicksburg Radio People stations River 101.3 and KHits 104.5 will be joining their sister stations from Jackson and Meridian for the annual Blair E. Batson Radiothon, which will run through Friday.

To date, the group of stations owned by brothers Bob and Clay Holiday has raised over a half-million dollars to benefit Mississippi children.

“It gives me a great appreciation for my healthy children,” said KHits’ morning show host Shaggy, otherwise known as Dailon Huskey. “So many of these kids spend so much time there. I really look forward to this event every year to catch up with the kids and see how they are doing.’

Chris Burks, River 101 morning host of the “Biscuits and Burks Show,” is a radio veteran of over 20 years with experience in larger markets such as Memphis and Tupelo.

“I have never done anything in my career that I am prouder of,” he said. The always jovial Burks was somber. “It’s a blessing to be a part of something so special for the children of our state,” he added.

Please tune in and give if you can.
