FE: TCA holiday

15 Dec FE: TCA holiday

Sharing bright spots this season from our friends at Teen Cancer America:
Chicago-based iHeart Media Executive Christine Briggs couldn’t believe her luck when she walked into a hotel bar after seeing an exhilarating performance by her beloved band, The Who, to find Roger Daltrey relaxing after the show. She took a chance to introduce herself and within minutes she was listening to Roger, not talking about The Who but Teen Cancer America and how iHeart could help us.
Inspired by that evening Christine has become an active advocate for Teen Cancer America. Using her influence, she is introducing us to potential corporate partners and within days she arranged for our Executive Director, Simon Davies to be interviewed by the DJ Sketch for his podcast ‘Sketch O Matic – CEO’s You Should Know’.

Sketch O’ Matic has become our new best friend. Not only did he extend his podcast to a half hour for us, he has pledged to support our work. In the session at iHeart’s Burbank studios Sketch O’ Matic entertained Simon along with Jamie Park, who manages our talent relations and JC, a young survivor who is now studying Music Production. Sketch OM was the perfect host and took time out to introduce us to the whole iHeart team, including Sports guru Fred Roggin. Fred let JC sit at his desk and take photos with him.
Next year Sketch OM is going to join a session with the Play it Back artists and will also give a group the opportunity to learn about broadcasting and production in his iHeart studio. “It was so cool to see what goes on behind the scenes of podcast recording and of so many legendary radio stations. Best part of it was meeting all the passionate people who make up iHeart!” – JC
