CMT was named the 2007 recipient of the Media Partner of the Year award by America's Second Harvest--The Nation's Food Bank Network last night at the organization's Annual Conference in Vail, Colo. The Media Partner of the Year award recognizes CMT for its partnership with America's Second Harvest through the CMT ONE COUNTRY campaign. In 2007, America's Second Harvest's sixth annual Hunger Awareness Day received unprecedented visibility, due in large part to the efforts of CMT. CMT's Director of Public Affairs, Lucia Folk, accepted the award on the network's behalf.
"CMT is honored to be chosen for this award
and to have given a media voice to Hunger Awarenss Day," said Folk. "CMT ONE COUNTRY is proud to have America's Second Harvest
as a partner, we will continue to work together to combat hunger."
"We are thankful for CMT's commitment to fighting
hunger in America," said Vicki Escarra, president and CEO of America's Second Harvest. "We consider ourselves blessed to have
such a wonderful corporate partnership and friendship with CMT."
CMT provided promotion about Hunger Awareness Day
on-air as well as via its other platforms including CMT Radio, CMT.com, CMTONECOUNTRY.com, and the CMT Life Set to Music publication.
Committed to inspire one million more volunteers, the CMT One Country campaign directed people to their local food bank to
help feed people right in their own community. The Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, a member of the America's
Second Harvest network, counts CMT among their greatest supporters.
