Ric Knight And T100.3 Supporting The Food Pantry Network.

“Support your local radio station and they’ll support you.”,  That’s the message I got from watching the T-100 crew  as they collected for the local food pantry in Newark, Ohio. 

In this age of digital distraction, there are many, many outlets to get your entertainment from, but radio remains not only entertaining, but important. Local, and I do stress LOCAL radio is an important link in any small community for so many reasons.

  • They’re here for emergencies when there is no power. 
  • The DJ’s aren’t just talking from some remote studio, they are members of  the community. They pay taxes. Their kids go to the same schools as yours. They buy from the same businesses that you do. I could go on and on. They really are the same as you and me and they share the same interest in the community that you do. 
  • They are a voice for you, not just corporate conglomerates. You tell them what you want to hear and what you need to know, not outside interests that are no part of the community. 
  • They are a local business and they support local businesses.

There are so many more reasons to support local radio, but things like a simple Christmas food drive on the square go to show what they’re all about. Radio DJ’s are having it tough these days. They’re being outsourced to save money. You’re probably heard some of these odd broadcasts from some stations using all syndicated/outsourced talent. Unless you just want to listen to music, they lack any entertainment or informative value. After listening to one of these stations, you realize how much you took for granted when the local stations ruled the airwaves. T-100 isn’t doing that and the quality of their broadcasts shows it.

If you missed the T-100 food drive, The Food Pantry will be on the square and you can go visit their website for more information on how to donate. The current economy is still leaving many with a dependency on the Newark, Ohio food pantry
