Company commits $1 million in on-air time for American Heart Month
In support of American Heart Month, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment has committed more than $1 million of on-air media to help educate the public about heart disease, the No. 1 killer of all Americans.
“Together with Clear Channel’s support and our longstanding partners at the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association, we know we can raise awareness and truly move the needle on these critical social issues and improve the health of women nationwide,” said Ad Council President and CEO Peggy Conlon.
The two-week public service campaign to educate listeners about the symptoms of heart disease and stroke kicked off Feb. 14. Some Clear Channel stations are airing a public service announcement voiced by Emmy-nominated actress Elizabeth Banksthat highlights the signs of heart attack in women. Others are airing a PSA to help people recognize a stroke. Earlier this month, Clear Channel teamed up with the association’s Go Red For Women movement to encourage America to “go red” for National Wear Red Day on Feb. 7.
