98.7 AMP Radio, a Top 40 station in Detroit, commits to bringing awareness to the national escalating bullying problem as well as gather together resources for people of all ages who are the victim of bullying.
“Unfortunately, bullying has become a serious issue recently,” said Debbie Kenyon, Vice President and Market Manager of CBS Radio Detroit. “Kids not only have to endure this at school, but now kids and adults are experiencing this through social media. 98.7 AMP Radio, our core artists, our on-air talent and the Detroit Lions are reaching out to let kids know that bullying isn’t right.”
Motivated by the recent number of local and national stories related to bullying, 98.7 AMP Radio started airing public service announcements urging the public to end the epidemic of bullying as well as to seek help if victimized by bullying. The PSAs are voiced by several 98.7 AMP Radio artists, including Jason Derulo and Taio Cruz, and Detroit Lions players, like quarterback Matt Stafford, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch. 98.7 AMP Radio’s on-air personalities have also taped PSAs.
Most notably, recognizing a lack of a comprehensive resource website for people facing bullying, 98.7 AMP Radio has developed a web page with listings of other websites and phone numbers that kids and their parents can use to get help.
The station hopes to expand the anti-bullying campaign into schools to increase awareness of the problem. 98.7 AMP Radio also wants to help launch a heroes program within schools that would encourage students to report bullying and to offer their support to students have been bullied.
