Broadcasters' Foundation to Offer Financial Relief to Storm Victims
The Broadcasters' Foundation says it is providing assistance to radio and TV broadcasters in acute financial need as a result of Hurricane Katrina.

Its efforts are led by a committee of its directors including Entercom Chairman Joseph Field, Emmis Communications Chairman Jeff Smulyan and Clear Channel Television President William Moll. They are helping to coordinate financial aid to broadcasters through an emergency grant program.

Foundation Chair Phil Lombardo and President Gordon Hastings issued a statement saying, "Our mission is to provide financial assistance to radio and television broadcasters in need. We understand that many of our colleagues may have lost their homes and nearly all of their personal possessions. We are here to help. The foundation will consider both the immediate and long-term needs of our fellow broadcasters and their families who have been devastated by this disaster."
They urge anyone who knows of affected broadcasters to contact the office at (203) 862-8577 or send e-mail to ghhbcast@aol.com.
