With the Thanksgiving holiday rapidly approaching, many news/talk stations are involved in collecting donations for local food pantries. 95.5 WSB is no different and saw a great turnout for its recent drive.

Alongside Cox Media Group’s sister stations, 95.5 WSB collected 16,965 meals for the Atlanta Community Food Bank. From November 11th through the 18th, the station collected 14,478 pounds of food from listeners and business partners throughout the city.

“This year was a record-breaking year for pounds of food collected that will make a positive impact on our community. We’re thankful for the partnership with Atlanta Community Food Bank and grateful to be able to help struggling families during this time of ‘thanks’ and ‘giving’,” said Jaleigh Long, Vice President and Market Manager, Cox Media Group Atlanta Radio.

The donations come at a great time for the Atlanta Community Food Bank, which has reported a 40% increase in citizens using the service since last year.

“We’re thankful for the tremendous support shown to the Food Bank by the listeners and fans, radio personalities, and team members across Cox Media Group’s Atlanta stations. For more than 5 years, fans of the stations have come out in force to donate food and funds to help us meet the growing need across our communities,” said Atlanta Community Food Bank President and CEO Kyle Waide.

“Visits to food pantries are up 40% over last year, as many hard-working families across our 29 county service area continue to struggle in the face of higher costs for food, housing, healthcare, and more. The food and funds raised during these events will have a huge, positive impact on the lives of countless neighbors who bear the emotional and physical stress of food insecurity.”

After more than a decade, 710 KNUS weekend host Randy Corporan has hosted his last show for the Denver news/talk station.

According to the host, Salem Media Group informed him it would not be renewing his contract late last month.

Corporan told CompleteColorado.com that after the death of his wife in June of last year, he considered ending the show. However, he persisted, commuting an hour and a half one way to continue the show.

He added that since announcing his exit, he has been contacted by “truly conservative outlets” to continue his program, but said he won’t begin a new show until after the 2024 election.

“I want to get the start of my new life going and sort myself out,” he said. “And I want to take care of some personal problems that need to be dealt with.”

Randy Corporan is listed as one of the defendants — along with Salem Media Group, parent company to 710 KNUS — in a defamation lawsuit brought forth by Dominion Voting Systems over what the election machine company calls “false claims of fraud in the 2020 election.”
