FORT WANYE, Ind. (WPTA 21) — It’s that time of the year again. Our partners in news at WOWO 1190 AM/107.5 FM are set to launch their annual Penny Pitch fundraiser.
The radio station announced Friday that for their 72nd Penny Pitch effort, the sole recipient of the funds raised will be Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana.
