Nexstar Media Group’s WDTN in Dayton, Ohio, raised $40,000 for its long-running Coats for Kids campaign with “Buckeye Blast.” This special event invited families to watch an Ohio State-Notre Dame game on the big screen at Day Air Ballpark, home of the single A Dayton Dragons. “We’re very proud of what we accomplished with WDTN’s Buckeye Blast and we truly thank everyone for joining us for this event,” said General Manager Melissa Jones. “Not only did our community have the opportunity to come out to a free, family friendly event, but they also made an impact for children in the Miami Valley to receive coats and accessories this winter through our Coats for Kids Initiative. We’re grateful to all our partners and contributors that helped make WDTN’s Buckeye Blast a success. We will continue to do our part as a local news leader by making more community connections and directly impacting the Miami Valley.”
