The lineup is set for the annual Mott Children’s Hospital takeover of Ann Arbor sports talk radio station WTKA-AM (1050).
A number of former Michigan football players, along with former head coach Lloyd Carr, current coach Brady Hoke and athletic director Dave Brandon, will take over the airwaves in hourly increments from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, May 18.
The takeover is the start of a three-day fundraising effort by former football players to benefit the hospital. The sixth annual Brian Griese/Steve Hutchinson/Charles Woodson Champions for Children’s Hearts Weekend continues with a gala dinner on Saturday, May 19, and a golf outing on Sunday, May 20.
During the radio takeover, WTKA will take pledges for the Coach Carr Mountaintop Experience Fund, which helps Mott patients and families during extended hospital stays.
The first nine hours of the programming will take place in the WTKA studio on Victors Way in Ann Arbor. The final two hours will be a remote broadcast from the MDen location on State Street in Ann Arbor.
