Booker's Stern Q102 Debut, Station To Assist Philly Police
May 10, 2006


Howard Stern was back on terrestrial radio Wednesday (5/10) when he welcomed his long time friend Booker to morning drive on Clear Channel Mainstream Top 40 WIOQ (Q102)/Philadelphia. The on-air exchange, which was broadcast on both Q102 and Sirius, lasted nearly 10 minutes with the entire cast of the Stern show hopping on mic to wish Booker good luck in morning drive.

"I had second thoughts about calling you because you work for Clear Channel," said Stern. "Clear Channel and I have had our problems as in they owe me millions of dollars, but I put my personal stuff aside so that I could call in and support you."

Booker also took the opportunity on his first day along with co-hosts Lisa Paige and Diego to offer up $5,000 for information leading to the apprehension and conviction of the individual responsible for the murder of Philadelphia Police Officer Gary Skerski. After the announcement Q listener Martin Morley, owner of Affordable Electric was inspired to pledge another $5,000.00. The contributions add to the growing number of dollars businesses and individuals are donating to the reward fund. Skershi was killed in the line of duty while responding to a robbery Monday night (5/8). The officer was a respected community-relations officer in the 15th Police District, and had volunteered to work overtime that night as part of Operation Safer Streets. The Citizen’s Crime Commission’s tipline at 215-546-TIPS (215-546-8477.)

Q102 will also remember Officer Gary Skerski and his family at their already planned "Suds and Studs Car Wash" Saturday, May 13 (12:00p.m. to 3:00p.m.) at White Glove Car Wash in North East Philly. The goal is to raise funds to benefit the Philadelphia Police Department’s Survivor's Fund which aids the families of Philadelphia Police Officers killed in the line of duty. Listeners will be encouraged to stop by and get their car washed and then toweled off by the Men of the Cave. A wash will only cost listeners $1.02 and before listeners leave, they will have the opportunity to make a donation to the Philadelphia Police Department’s Survivor Fund. For more info
