B103.9FM Morning Personality and Army Veteran Jason “Big Mama” Jones (host of the “Big Mama and the WiLd Bunch Morning Show”), in conjunction with ABC 7, will join together on Veterans Day (Wednesday, November 11) to raise awareness and support for Home Base Southwest Florida Veteran and Family Care.
In addition to hosting the morning show, Jones can be heard on Beasley Media Group’s Bravery Network, a weekend program dedicated to shining a light on important issues and services available for veterans and their families. The public service show can be heard on Sunday mornings on Beasley Media Group’s WXKB-FM, WRXK-FM, WJPT-FM, WWCN-FM, WRXK HD-2 and WJBX-FM.
Florida has one of the largestveteran populations in the United States. Proceeds raised from the on-air event will be used to provide important support services for veterans and their families residing across Southwest Florida.
“I am very excited about this partnership,” said Jones. “Being able to use the power of radio and television to help raise awareness and money for the veterans of Southwest Florida. I am planning some “star” studded guest for the day that will not only make show informative but very entertaining as well.”
