WWJ Newsradio 950 Difference Maker In The Community
The Difference Maker in the Community program has concluded.
Do you know someone in your community who has made a difference to benefit others? WWJ Newsradio 950 is seeking individuals who are making a difference, big or small — people who have inspired positive change and those who have made an impact in the community.
Each month, WWJ will honor a person as the Difference Maker in the Community. This person will be highligthed on-air and on cbsdetroit.com for their positive contributions. All monthly Difference Makers will be invited to join WWJ Newsradio 950 at a special luncheon in the spring of 2013 to recognize the positive contributions.
Monthly Difference Makers will be selected based on the strength of character and the courage to do what is right, promotion of the community, and the positive impact to the community. Decision of the judges is final. Please note: nominations will be held for the length of the program (May 2012-April 2013).
