The 303:30 – We Are Nashville author & News 2 anchors
- Updated: May 8, 2010
In this special Nashville Flood Awareness episode of The 303:30, Codey and Jeremy talk with WKRN News 2′s Christine Maddela and Joe Dubin about the sights and sounds of the past week and they chat with Patten Fuqua, author of the now-viral blog We Are Nashville. The guys also give clues about an impressive giveaway that will help promote Nashville tourism during this difficult time. (Trust us… you, your friends and your family will want to enter!)
Fuqua penned what is being called a “rallying cry” for Nashville and has been read on-air by Dave Ramsey, Rush Limbaugh, and even referenced by Anderson Cooper of CNN when he was reporting live from Nashville this past Thursday. Both Maddela and Dubin have led the charge among Nashville-based news outlets on the flood coverage and have worked around the clock as well as put in volunteer hours of their own in their brief “time off.” Also, if you’re an animal lover, you will not want to miss Dubin’s testamonial of the donations at a local animal shelter.
There are several ways to help. You can make a flat donation by going to The Community Foundation’s website, volunteer (if you’re local) by signing up at HON.org or, if you want some pretty sweet swag for your donation, you can buy a We Are Nashville t-shirt from the good people over at coolpeoplecare.com or a Lift Up Nashville hatch-print style poster. All proceeds of both items go directly to charities that help the flood victims of Middle Tennessee.
We, again, want to thank Crest Honda for providing us with their Flood Relief radio spot for this episode. We applaud them for doing the right thing by providing help to those who need it in Middle Tennessee and have run their spot free of charge. Please join us in supporting them and their efforts. You can visit them online at cresthonda.com.
