Mid-Michigan: Newsmakers Jan. 3, 2009




Saginaw News:

Charlie Rood, who works the morning broadcast with Art Lewis and Dave Maurer at WSGW-AM, 790, says it's always fun to see loyal listeners show up at the Winter Broadcast Blood Boost with shirt sleeves rolled up, ready to help. "Then you have someone stop by to say thanks and he's telling you how it saved his life, and you realize this simple thing we're doing means so much," said Rood, who Monday kicks off the 20th annual event at Fashion Square Mall, at Tittabawassee and Bay in Saginaw Township. Through Saturday, Jan. 10, some 14 radio stations will broadcast live from the mall and encourage listeners to donate through the week. It's free, and those who donate will receive buy one-get-one-free coupons for the upcoming Shrine Circus at TheDow Event Center, refreshments from The Coffee Beanery, 2009 pocket calendars from the blood center and entry in a drawing for gifts from Communications Family Credit Union, Consumers Energy and Boehler's Greenhouse. Blood banks regularly start running dry during the holidays, said Mary Ebelt, special events coordinator at the Michigan Community Blood Center-Saginaw Valley, and this year is no exception...
