FISHER HOUSE FOUNDATION has produced a one-hour special for MEMORIAL DAY weekend, "A Grateful Nation," hosted by CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KFI-A/LOS ANGELES weekend host BRYAN SUITS and distributed by PREMIERE NETWORKS as a barter show with five in-show network minutes, most promoting FISHER HOUSE, attached and a single MEMORIAL DAY-specific FISHER HOUSE PSA stations may run at their discretion.
The show will feature stories of soldiers and their families, highlighting the work FISHER HOUSE has done to build facilities for the families of wounded warriors while their loved ones are being treated at military and VA hospitals. The special focuses on the story of SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA's STANTON family, whose son died in AFGHANISTAN and who were among the first guests at the FISHER HOUSE for Families of the Fallen.
"I'm honored to be part of this program," said SUITS, who has served overseas. "It's the perfect way for news/talk stations to mark the MEMORIAL DAY holiday, a time when the service and sacrifice of the military are top of mind with their listeners."
"Holidays, birthdays & anniversaries have been celebrated with tears and smiles with people who truly understand what the other person is experiencing."
