Philly Makes A Breakthrough

iHeartMedia Philadelphia and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) have joined forces to launch Breakthrough Radio, a station dedicated to kids and their families, while promoting a healthy lifestyle. Breakthrough Radio will feature health tips and interviews with doctors, patients and members of the CHOP staff. Listeners will learn how CHOP delivers breakthroughs every day, while providing the highest quality, compassionate, family-centered care available. Breakthrough Radio is hosted by a couple of familiar Philly voices — Loraine Ballard Morrill, Director of News and Community Affairs for iHeartMedia Philadelphia and Michael Tozzi, PD of Smooth Jazz WJJZ.

Breakthrough Radio is sure to make you smile and put you in a good mood,” said Brian Check, VP of Programming for iHeartMedia Philadelphia. “We play fun music from many decades, from Motown, the ’70s, and ’80s, to today’s pop artists that families love.” Lisa Biggs, MD, Associate Chief Medical Officer of the CHOP Care Network added, “We are very excited to be partnering with iHeartMedia Philadelphia to launch Breakthrough Radio,” said “We are always looking for innovative ways to reach families, and Breakthrough Radio gives us the opportunity to engage with our community while providing vital health information.”

Breakthrough Radio is available on and on your radio at 1480 AM and 105.3 HD2.
