1080 The Fan Raises 130K For Special Olympics Oregon

1080 The Fan in Portland completed its 5th annual radiothon with over $130,000 raised for Special Olympics Oregon. The 28-hour radiothon was anchored by The FAN’s afternoon-drive hosts Isaac Ropp and Jason Scukanec of Primetime with Isaac and Suke.

“I am humbled by the generosity of our listeners, and their collective can-do attitude to help us with Special Olympics Oregon each year,” commented Ropp. “Portland is a great community, and this is a cause that is near and dear to us. We talk about sports and high-profile athletes every day, but these Olympians are the real champions.”

“Special Olympics Oregon and its 12,000 participants are truly grateful to Entercom, Isaac & Suke, and all of the FAN listeners for their amazing support during the radiothon,” said Special Olympics Oregon chief development officer Torre Chisholm. “We are also appreciative of the role Comcast SportsNet Northwest and their outstanding broadcasters played in the event. Together, as a community of people who believe in the power of sports to change lives, we succeeded in raising a record amount of money to create new and expanding opportunities for Special Olympics athletes throughout Oregon.”

“We’re honored to partner with Special Olympics Oregon each year,” said FAN program director Jeff Austin. “The overwhelming support of the FAN staff, our listeners, and advertisers was essential in setting a new record for donations, and further proof of the unique bond Isaac and Suke have with their audience.”
