ANN ARBOR, MI – The University of Michigan Football Team will take over Sports Talk 1050 WTKA in Ann Arbor on Wednesday, June 7, to benefit the campaign for a new U-M C.S. Mott Children's Hospital and Women’s Hospital.

For the 12-hour radio-a-thon, Michigan coaches, players and former players will take turns hosting the show from 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. The WTKA event will begin with Head Coach Lloyd Carr, and wrap up with several assistant coaches.
U-M coaches and players will be very active in the radio-a-thon, talking Michigan Football on the air and raising awareness for the C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and Women’s Hospital campaign.
In addition to the Wolverine football program, physicians and other medical experts, along with patients and their families, from C.S. Mott Children's Hospital and Women’s Hospital will be featured during the radio-a-thon.
