Raising nearly $300,000 in two days is no easy task. I am proud of the work our talented team delivers every day, and am grateful that we have listeners and sponsors that respond and support our efforts to make the Upstate a better place for all of us,” says Entercom Greenville’s Vice President and General Manager, Steve Sinicropi.

“For the 8th year in a row, we are in awe over what the Entercom Upstate listeners are able to step up and do in only two days!
