In Honour of Cole

We are fortunate to have met Cole Wittenberg and his family. Cole lost his brave battle with cancer at age 4 this month. Cole was to be our honourary host and we now work to honour Cole. We'd like to thank Cole's family for their courage to share their story. Cole touched the lives of many people in the Valley, and we'll be forever grateful to have met such a lovely little boy. He had the true spirit of a Ninja Turtle. Cole and his family joined us in the K-Rock studio to announce that we were holding this Radiothon with the Children's Wish Foundation. It was an honour to have Cole as a guest host on the Morning Show with Darrin. We dedicate our Radiothon to Cole and his family and friends.
