LOS ANGELES, Aug. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Entravision Communications Corporation (NYSE: EVC), a diversified media company serving Latino audiences and communities, and Children's Miracle Network Hospitals®, a charity that raises funds for 170 children's hospitals, today announced that $3.2 million was raised for member hospitals during their 10th annual network-wide Radiothon, under the theme of "Un Million Para Los Niños" (One Million for the Children). This year, over 95 communities nationwide will benefit from the Radiothon due to the participation of Entravision's talented on-air staff and the increased reach of its online and mobile platforms.
"Our tenth annual Radiothon in collaboration with Children's Miracle Network Hospitals was a huge success, and we would be remiss to not congratulate this incredible charity for all their hard work over the years. Entravision continuously looks for ways to support and give back to our local communities and we are grateful for this partnership and pleased to have surpassed last year's donation, in turn, benefiting even more families," said Jeffery Liberman, Entravision's President and Chief Operating Officer.
"Our partnership with Entravision Communications has produced a monumental achievement for the kids in this 10th annual Radiothon, which has evolved into a full blown Mediathon with comprehensive digital support," said Danny Garcia, National Director Hispanic Media Partners. "We are extremely grateful to the entire team for their all-out effort to make this an absolute success, which impacts so many families and communities across the country. Children's Miracle Network looks forward to growing this partnership and is excited to work on new and better ways of making miracles happen for the kids."

The live stream also highlighted several music performances and pre-recorded testimonials. The $3.2 million raised this year makes this the most successful Entravision Radiothon to benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals surpassing last year's total by $200 thousand.
