    • 2009 ~ Parents magazine names St. Jude as the Number 1 pediatric cancer care hospital in the country!

    St. Jude Representative Rachel Lemon, who has worked with WNWN for the past three years, exclaims "I am so honored to be able to work with such a wonderful group of people - the entire station makes St. Jude a commitment throughout the year! In 10 years, Win98.5 has raised over $600,000 for St. Jude which is an amazing achievement. Thanks to the community for coming togehter for the children of St. Jude."
