G987FM BESTOW TITLE OF COVID CARE CHAMPION ON 200 FRONT LINE WORKERS

TORONTO DECEMBER 16, 2020

G987FM is proud to recognize and designate as COVID Care Champions the frontline
workers across the province for their unwavering commitment in the battle against the
COVID-19 global pandemic.

The objective is to honour and confer this special title of “COVID Care Champion” on
200 front line workers nominated by anyone for their outstanding contribution by
December 20th. Since the launch of this initiative on December 2nd, 2020, G987FM, has
been overwhelmed with more than 150 nominations in the first two weeks for COVID
Care Champions on the frontlines in healthcare, food distribution, manufacturing,
education, telecommunications, and other industries across the GTA.

“These individuals are fighting this pandemic while risking their own health everyday
they are on the job. “We want to thank them for their resilience in this effort to save lives
and to keep us all healthy,” said Delford Blythe, Founding Director and Station Manager
of G987FM’s parent company, Intercity Broadcasting Network Inc. “Working with our
corporate partner, Michel Germain Parfum Ltd, we are honoured to put some sweet
fragrance behind their mask for Christmas in the form of perfume gift sets.”

“In November, I celebrated my 34th year working in the healthcare sector and this is the
first time I’ve received a gift for my service. Thank you G987FM and the team for
thinking of us. It’s greatly appreciated,” said Valerie Rattray, Personal Support Worker.

In addition, as a special recognition, one lucky COVID Care Champion will also receive
$987, in cash, during the Mark & Jem morning show on December 24th.

    I am recommending Marion Johnson PSW as My COVID care champion. She has a heart of gold. She is committed to the job, doesn’t take days off unless it is imperative. Always shows up for work. She is a True COVID champion. Her photo will follow

    I would like to nominate my mom Bilyana who is a clinical pharmacist. She is incredibly hard working and a great mother, too. Everyday, she goes to work at Etobicoke General Hospital to help patients who are struggling. Although I know she is not allowed to wear perfume at work, I know she would love it!

    I truly want to express my sincere thanks to the staff at G98.7 for their consideration and thoughts in putting this awesome gesture together.Thanks for selecting me as one of the recipients for the covid-care championship.It was certainly a pleasant surprise when I learned of me being a nominee.
    The gift could not been more rewarding and the timing has been impeccable.It has been extremely busy at work today with all the covid cases, code blues and icu admits in our E.R today. Over all been feeling demotivated, so a big thank you again for the boost/drive today to keep pushing.
