Teen's Foundation Finalizes Radio Station Purchase from Disney
The Jennifer Smart Foundation completed its purchase of KALY AM 1240 in Albuquerque, NM from the Walt Disney Company. The JENNiRADIO format begins airing this month. Jennifer Smart will be available in Albuquerque for interviews over the holidays.
KALY AM 1240 is wholly owned by the Jennifer Smart Foundation, and its net income will go to national charities and worthy causes in the local community.
JENNiRADIO features age-appropriate music, movie and web site reviews, positive messages about giving back, Jennifer's celebrity interviews and other exclusive content.
"We will be selecting a few local charity organizations in Albuquerque that can use our help, and look forward to benefitting the community by assisting them. I can't wait to get kids and families in the area involved in donating and volunteering. We will also be doing some fund-raising events, and continue supporting my favorite national organizations, like Alex's Lemonade Stand," Jennifer explains.
She will be visiting local charities over the holidays, including serving Christmas dinner at Joy Junction. There will be opportunities to meet listeners, including an appearance at Albuquerque's famed River of Lights on December 29th. Jennifer will also be available for interviews with local press while in town.
She has a long history in broadcasting, starting with hosting a nationally-syndicated talk radio show from the age of 6 to 11. Jennifer began talking to stars on red carpets at the age of 8, and has interviewed more celebrities than anyone else her age. She continues to focus on the good works of the famous and not-so-famous, in encouraging more people to get involved in donating not only money, but also their time and effort, to worthy causes.
