Moultrie-- Radio D. J.'s are calling on to listeners to help Tsunami survivors in Asia. WHBS-AM 1400, a new 24 hour Gospel radio station in Moultrie, has kicked off a radiothon.

All donations will go to American Red Cross Disaster Relief. "It started as an off the cuff remark on air by me one morning," said WHBS President Ron Sailor. "That perhaps we needed to stop talking about the news and start becoming a part of the news and that's what we've done. The response has been really fantastic."

Thanks to listeners, WHBS has already passed their $2,500 goal. The radiothon ends Friday morning at ten.

WHBS is a 1,000 Watt omni-directional radio station that bucks the trend of AM stations that have gone dark, in favor of FM radio stations.
