Philadelphia, PA (September 3, 2019) -- Entercom, a leading media and entertainment company and one of the two largest radio broadcasters in the U.S., today announced a two-hour live, commercial-free broadcast special, “I’m Listening,” to raise awareness around mental health and mark the start of National Suicide Prevention Week. As part of its multiplatform yearlong “I’m Listening” campaign, the broadcast will air nationwide on Sunday, September 8 at 7:00 a.m. across more than 235 stations and via each station’s livestream on RADIO.COM in their respective time zones. The yearlong campaign also includes suicide prevention PSAs, on-air promos and a dedicated website with information and resources to end the stigma around mental health discussions.

“Mental health and suicide prevention are year-round initiatives at Entercom and we are doing our part to end the stigma by encouraging people to talk,” said Pat Paxton, Chief Programming Officer, Entercom. “Like millions of others, my family has been impacted by mental health issues and the effect it has on friends and families is devastating. ‘I’m Listening’ is when our vast network of radio stations and digital platforms unite on the same day, at the same time, to ultimately save lives. If we help just one person, our time will have been well spent.”
