Hope Nation Radio’s recognizable voice and co-founder Nile Peaytt has traveled back home to spread hope to kids fighting cancer north of Music City. In honor of September being Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the Fairmont, West Virginia native is proud to announce the expansion of charitable internet radio station Hope Nation Radio (HNR) to his home state, building on the success they have solidified in Nashville, TN.
“It means a lot to me to be able to bring Hope Nation Radio home and be embraced by the community here,” says Nile. “Kids fighting cancer need to be celebrated everywhere, not just the big cities. I’ve already gotten to put a few smiles on faces and that is a great start in my book.”
Already a regular visitor at West Virginia University (WVU) Medicine Children’s Hospital, Nile has teamed up with the hospital for special events, room visits and dropping off his specially made goodie bags — always a kid-approved favorite. Hope Nation Radio has also jumped into fundraising efforts for a brand new, standalone facility for women and children that WVU hopes to complete by 2020, officially moving the Children’s Hospital out of their single floor operation.
Along with the expansion, Nile has been busy working on international relationships with an array of radio stations to secure syndication of specific programs like HNR’s 90s Country Flashback. The growing buzz around HNR has not deterred the benevolent station from continuing their many awareness campaigns. Listeners and followers of HNR can still keep up with their Kid of the Month, Artist Spotlight and much more.
