Listen to the Homelessness Marathon

The 9th annual Homelessness Marathon is set to air from Atlanta starting at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, February 15. The Marathon is a 14 hour live broadcast focusing on homelessness and poverty in America.

The Homelessness Marathon is a consciousness raising, not a fund raising broadcast. There are no on air solicitations. Instead, the Marathon presents the voices of experts, takes calls from around the country and, above all, puts homeless people on the air directly so America can hear who they really are and learn about the obstacles they face.

The Florida stations broadcasting the marathon are WGCU, 90.1 FM, in Fort Myers and WMNF 88.5 FM, in Tampa. You can also listen on the Internet on Blast Furnace Radio.
