Cox Media Group Cares Tampa Bay Small Business Initiative

Six-week program to provide $250,000 in radio and promotional advertising to businesses affected by the storm

While Tampa Bay was spared a direct hit by Hurricane Irma, many local businesses were still greatly impacted by the storm. Some were left without power, lost inventory, or even had to close their doors for days. Cox Media Group (CMG) announced it will launch its philanthropic initiative, Cox Media Group Cares Tampa Bay. With the generous support of sponsors, Cox Cares will help small businesses recover after Irma through marketing and promotional outreach.

Each Saturday between Oct. 21 and Small Business Saturday (Nov. 25), local companies will be featured on Cox Media Group radio stations. The businesses will receive free on-air, online and social media promotion throughout the week. The supporting station will also be on-site at each business location that Saturday. Cox Cares will provide assistance to more than 40 small businesses in the Tampa Bay area with approximately $250,000 in promotional support.

“CMG understands local businesses are an important part of our communities. The disruption from Hurricane Irma has greatly impacted these businesses. We are proud to help support them at a time when they need it most.”    
-Keith Lawless, Vice President/General Manager for CMG Tampa.
