Several Detroit radio stations are holding a radiothon all day long Monday to raise money for the Detroit Police Athletic League.

Entercom radio stations – WWJ Newsradio 950, 97.1 The Ticket, 104.3 WOMC, 99.5 WYCD, 98.7 WDZH and AM 1270 WXYZ – will hold the "Step Up to The Plate" radiothon from 6 .m. to 7 p.m.

Donations may be made by calling a special Detroit PAL phone number, 313-880-4725 (4PAL) or online at

“Like many other non-profits in our area, Detroit PAL is in much need of funds to help us bridge the gap to support our programming to continue into the Fall, Winter and even into next year,” said Detroit PAL CEO Robert Jamerson. “One challenge we often face is to garner exposure, as people may not realize there is significant need to help the youth of Detroit find their greatness and we can’t thank Entercom enough for stepping up in a big way to give us the platform to help share that message.”
