The River of Hope Radiothon, which has aired on WRVW-FM 107.5 The River for 13 years, broadcast live from Seacrest Studios at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in December 2017. On-air personalities interviewed patients, families and hospital staff about their experiences, and listeners made pledges to benefit the hospital. The annual event raised $183,481. This year, special guests included singer Khalid, Nashville hockey player Nick Bonino and singer RaeLynn.
