BBCH Radio Partners, Frank 107.5 and 99.9 The Wolf Receive CMN Hospitals Highest Honor

March 12, 2018

English Radio Partners of the Year

PORTLAND, Maine – Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) has announced that Frank 107.5 and 99.9 The Wolf have been selected as the 2017 English Radio Partners of the Year as a result of their ongoing commitment to The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital.

Both stations were unanimously selected among the more than 300 radio stations nationwide who work in partnership with their local CMN Hospital. Last week, representatives from Frank FM and The Wolf traveled to Orlando, Florida to accept the award at CMN Hospitals’ annual conference, Children’s Hospital Week Summit.

“We are truly honored to be recognized among so many of our peers in the industry who are doing important work in support of their local children’s hospitals,” said Stan Bennett, Operations Manager at Binnie Media, the parent company of Frank 107.5 and 99.9 The Wolf. “We feel a great sense of pride knowing that we can play a part in making sure that kids in our community have access to the very best care.”

Frank 107.5 and 99.9 The Wolf first became involved with The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital in 2006 when they hosted the first ever Cares for Kids Radiothon. A year-round partnership quickly developed with both stations lending air time and radio talent to a variety of events, all centered around the mission of raising funds for local kids.

The 13th annual Cares for Kids Radiothon will take place on March 15-17. To date, the Cares for Kids Radiothon has raised nearly $2 million for The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital, Maine’s only children’s hospital.

“The impact that Frank 107.5 and 99.9 The Wolf have had on The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital, and our young patients is immeasurable,” said John Bancroft, M.D., Chief of Pediatrics at BBCH and Maine Medical Center. “We are deeply grateful for their partnership and thrilled that both stations are receiving this well-deserved recognition.”
