Cox Media Group (CMG) Tulsa, Okla., including Fox affiliate KOKI-TV, myNetworkTV affiliate KMYT, KRAV-FM, KWEN-FM and KRMG-AM helped its community partners raise more than $2 million in the first half of 2020.

This figure does not include non-monetary fundraising efforts CMG has pushed through its channels. CMG Tulsa partnered with the Community Food Bank to collect more than 774 pounds of food for its annual Spread the Love campaign, collected 220 pints of blood through a drive with the Oklahoma Blood Institute, and diverted more than 93 tons of recyclable items from the dump through the inaugural Big Spring Clean.

“During times of great uncertainty, like now, people rely more than ever on the support of community partners to help them get through,” said CMG-Tulsa Market Vice President Cathy Gunther. “This is why we have not only upheld our commitments to our current partners, but have gone a step further and added a number of new events to try and help our partners jump-start donations to serve more people who are now reliant upon them.”
