For WFUV, located at Fordham University and one of NYC's leading public radio stations, Winuk Communications provided brand building support and led media relations for the station's high profile fundraising galas in Manhattan. Honorees, presenters and performers included Tom Brokaw, Charles Osgood, NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Frank Gifford, Pat Summerall, Levon Helm, Los Lobos, Bob Schieffer, Alejandro Escovedo and others. The agency's support for the events helped raise about $1 million for the station. When honoree and legendary sportscaster Ernie Harwell passed away the evening before one of the galas, the agency helped develop, direct and successfully execute the crisis communications plan for Fordham University and WFUV. The agency generated hundreds of media placements, including in business, sports, entertainment, broadcast industry, education and general interest outlets.
