MyFM Media Agrees To Three Year Broadcast Extension With New England Patriot’s

MyFM 101.3 has just completed negotiations with Beasley Media Group & the New England Patriot’s, and has finalized an agreement that will ensure that New England Patriot’s Football will be broadcast right here “In the Heart of It All” through the 2024/25 season.

Returning voices of Bob Socci and Scott Zolak will anchor the broadcasts.
 
MyFM Media President Tom McAuliffe says “We’re thrilled to continue the proud partnership we have with the Pat’s, and believe with Mac Jones at the helm this team has positioned themselves beautifully to win several more Superbowl Titles!”  “It’s the perfect win-win for My FM, our listeners and our loyal Patriot’s sponsors.”

MyFM 101.3 Wins Coveted “Station of the Year” Award

“I will never take winning this award lightly or for granted.  To win this award once is an amazing accomplishment, but to win it a record 11 times is simply unheard of in the industry.  I can’t say enough about my staff, our listeners, fans and followers, and all the local partners we’ve developed over the years” said Tom McAuliffe, owner of MyFM Media. 

With a commitment to community, and a little light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel, MyFM Media launched their first ever MyFM Quest for the Best Contest.  This initiative was designed to inject some serious positivity back into the community by shining a spotlight on the incredible local businesses who have endured, innovated, and found new and better ways to serve their customers and clients during the toughest economic period in almost 100 years.

The MyFM Quest for the Best Contest simply exploded and grew into the biggest promotion this region had ever seen with over 1,200 local businesses nominated in over 234 categories, and then over 256,000 votes in just 2 weeks!  

“We believed our listeners, fans and followers were sick and tired of toxic politics and pandemic talk and we were right.  I think this was the number one reason why the judges from the Wyoming Broadcasters Association selected MyFM,” McAuliffe said.

"The Station of the Year Award is the one award that every station strives to win.  It's the most cherished station award the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association presents,” explained Jordan Walton, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association.  “My FM 101.3 truly epitomizes what 

LOCAL radio, and service to the community is all about, and we're proud to salute them with this honor for a record 11th time.”

“The Station of the Year” award is presented annually by the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association to the most outstanding radio station in the Commonwealth, and is open to all of the more than 200 radio stations.

The “Station of the Year” award is given to the top station in Massachusetts that exemplifies overall excellence in all phases of operation.  The judges, members of the Wyoming Broadcasters Association, cited MyFM 101.3 had experienced extraordinary growth of audience, client base, but most importantly, MyFM was providing exceptional service to their listeners, community officials, and local organizations.

5th Annual MyFM Tailgating For Toys Charity Toy Drive Collects Over $25,000 in Toys

5th Annual MyFM Tailgating For Toys 

Charity Toy Drive Collects Over $25,000 in Toys


Massachusetts Broadcasters Association's 2021 Radio Station of the Year, MyFM 101.3, recently spent the weekend of Friday, November 26th through Sunday, November 28th, braving the elements outside of Walmart in Bellingham, MA collecting an estimated $25,000 worth of toys over a 31-hour period for the local, veterans-operated organization Toys For Kids And Teens.

A COW (Container on Wheels) was generously donated by Gallo Moving in Milford and utilized as storage for the donated toys over the three-day donation event.  The COW was also used to efficiently transport the donations to the Toys For Kids and Teens headquarters in Northbridge at the end of the collection.

While many toys were donated on site from listeners of the station and Walmart shoppers, a large factor in the success of the drive each year is through the generous support from "Shopping Spree Sponsors".

A Shopping Spree Sponsor is an individual/business that donates a minimum of $250.00 in cash to the cause. The cash donation was then spent on toys by an official MyFM Tailgating For Toys volunteer in Walmart. In return for the monetary donation, the shopping was done and a Facebook video was posted with all the toys purchased in their name as a thank you. Videos can be viewed on the station's Facebook page @MyFM1013.

"Those sponsorships make a huge impact.  It really sets the tone for the entire drive.  We're lucky to have so many generous friends," said MyFM Operations manager and event coordinator, Ray Auger.

Toys for Kids and Teens is a 5013c non-profit organization that collects and disperses toys during the holiday season to families in need. Toys for Kids and Teens covers the Blackstone Valley area, further points east.  They can be reached through their website at www.toysforkidsandteens.com.

Community Comes Together For Another Successful MyFM Stuff-a-Bus

On Saturday November 30th local radio station MyFM 101.3 set up camp outside of Target on Fortune Blvd in Milford and began their 30-hour residency in hopes to fulfill their goal of collecting enough toys to fill a school bus. 

The 3rd Annual MyFM Stuff-a-Bus partnered with Uxbridge-based Toys For Kids and Teens in 2019 to assist local families in need this holiday season. “Last year we collected roughly 5,000 toys and we were hoping to just come close enough to topping that this year,” explains MyFM President Tom McAuliffe. “At the end of a very long 30-hours we were happy to report that, through the generosity of the local community, we blew that away with over 8,000 toys!”

The MyFM staff dedicated their weekend assisting with the drive and even went as far as camping out overnight to watch over the toys. But they weren’t exactly roughing it. Affordable Junk Removal and Resellables provided a comfortable living room to rest in. They were well fed thanks to local restaurants TGIFridays, IHOP and Five Guys. The crew kept warm by dancing to festive holiday music that filled the donation area.

MyFM Operations Manager Ray Auger brought the annual event to the MyFM after taking part in similar drives years ago on The Cape and in Portsmouth, NH. “I saw the impact it had on those communities and knew that we could really make a different here as well,” says Auger. “It just fit so well with the MyFM model. I knew our friends in the community would just run with it and help make it something special.”

For the past 3 years, Vendetti Bus Company has been generous enough to provide the bus, which is used to store the toys collected throughout the drive. The bus even comes with it’s own mascot, Jingles the Elf, a.k.a. Milford’s favorite, festive bus driver Moe Hutchins.

In addition to the outpouring of assistance from the local community braving the cold to drop of their toys, local businesses and individuals chose to donate $250 or more for shopping spree that sent the MyFM staff into Target to do the shopping for them. The Shopping Sprees were filmed and posted on MyFM’s Facebook page. $6,250 was raised which allowed for purchases of TV’s, bicycles, electronics and other toys for older children. MyFM would like to thank Dinner and Co., Chelsee O’Meara – LuLaRoe, Montgomery Lodge, Milford Tire, The Kearnans, Lioce Properties, KemForKids, Milford Hardwood, Milford TV, Doyle Siding and Window, Ray’s Automotive, Friends of Holliston, Old Time Auto Sales, Masters Touch, Devlin’s Tavern,. Depot St Tavern, Stephanie G Jewelers, Target and an anonymous Hopkinton donator.

At the end of the drive the toys were moved from the bus to a Gallo Moving and Storage truck where they were stored and transported to the Toys For Kids and Teens drop off site.

MyFM would like to thank all who donated and participated in another successful community event that is sure to bring joy and happiness to many local families this holiday season.

MyFM 101.3 Wins Coveted “Station of the Year” Award

“I was absolutely stunned. This is the equivalent of winning the Super Bowl or the World Series, so I was in complete shock when they announced we had won the Station of the Year Award for a record 9th time. I can’t say enough about my staff, our listeners, fans and followers, and all the local partners we’ve developed over the years” said Tom McAuliffe, owner of MyFM Media, as he accepted the 2019 Massachusetts Broadcasters Association’s Station of the Year Award. “

And to think we also won awards for Outstanding Public Service Campaign for our work with Ben Speaks, and our Summer School promotion with Dean College was also recognized. This certainly proves that our Multi-Media efforts over the past few years are resonating with our listeners and community partners. People expect to be able to access what they want, where they want, and when they want it, and My FM is fulfilling that need,” McAuliffe added.

"The Station of the Year Award is the one award that every station strives to win. It's the most cherished station award the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association presents,” explained Jordan Walton, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association. “My FM 101.3 truly epitomizes what LOCAL radio, and service to the community is all about, and we're proud to salute them with this honor for a record 9th time.”

“The Station of the Year” award is presented annually by the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association to the most outstanding radio station in the Commonwealth, and is open to all of the more than 180 radio stations.

The “Station of the Year” award is given to the top station in Massachusetts that exemplifies overall excellence in all phases of operation. The judges, members of the Iowa Broadcasters Association, cited MyFM 101.3 had experienced extraordinary growth of audience, client base, but most importantly, MyFM was providing exceptional service to their listeners, community officials, and local organizations.

To put this award into perspective, the television “Station of the Year” for 2019 was WCVB, Channel 5 Boston, considered by many to be the finest TV station in the United States. You can see the prestige that this award grants MyFM 101.3.

The Hockomock Area YMCA Teamed Up with Soldiers’ Angels Treats for Troops to Collect Halloween Candy for Troops and Veterans

By virtue of families, non-profit groups, radio sponsorship and corporate philanthropy, the Hockomock Area YMCA is gratified to share results of the recent candy giveback spearheaded at the Franklin Y to aid and comfort the men, women and veterans of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard.

Treats for Troops ran successfully and was a rewarding initiative for Brandi Jacobs, senior membership experience director at the Franklin Y—who launched the community-wide effort. “Many times, following Halloween, the Y gets inquiries about sharing extra candy with soldiers. The Y has historically been happy to do so, however shipping costs can add up and that can be an obstacle toward pulling off such a drive.”

of candy–in 102 boxes

The Hockomock Area YMCA, with facilities in Franklin, Foxboro and North Attleboro, has 31,000 members as well as meaningful partnerships within the fifteen communities served. So when Jacobs enrolled on Halloween Day to become a Soldiers’ Angels drop-off site, she guessed there would be no shortage of donations. 

“In the end, our collective purpose to provide comfort to those who serve meant we would find a way to cover shipping costs and deliver donations where they would have the most impact. The fact that there is a national nonprofit, Soldiers’ Angels, that coordinates volunteers with the mission that no soldier goes unloved was instrumental in moving us in the right direction,” said Jacobs.

Shortly after sharing the drive’s goals and drop off locations, the Y received a call from radio host Ray Auger, intent on publicizing the drive over the 101.3 FM network. Donations following the November 8 radio interview with Jacobs poured in, including from the following: members of the YMCA, community members, Dell Technologies, Frederick W. Hartnett Middle School in Blackstone, Dudley Elementary School, and The Franklin Lion’s Club through their collection across Franklin public schools.

On November 19, an astonishing 2,258 pounds of candy–in 102 boxes–was loaded onto a truck headed to Stratton VAMC/Voluntary Service in Albany, NY. A sincere thank you goes out to Marine veteran Jeff Harris, owner of LBP Solutions of Foxboro, who offered to rent a truck and drive the candy to its destination.

Although the gesture of donating excess candy may seem small, it is a wonderful way to remind our men and women in the Armed Forces, as well as veterans of all eras, that we are all thankful for the services and sacrifices they have provided for our country and our families.

About Hockomock Area YMCA:Where Cause Meets Community. At the Hockomock Area YMCA, strengthening community is our cause. The Hockomock Area YMCA is an organization of men, women, and children sharing a commitment to nurture the potential of kids, promote healthy living, and foster a sense of social responsibility.

“The garden welcomes everyone”

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:
"Victoria Almeida knew she wanted a dedicated spot for her grandson, Tristan, to pay his respects to his dad whenever he felt the need. 
Ryan Trant, Tristan’s father, was 24 when he died in September 2017 after accidentally overdosing on fentanyl - an opioid known to be 80 to 100 times stronger than morphine, according to the United States Drug Enforcement Agency. 
“Ryan was cremated, so I didn’t have a place,” Almeida said. 
After months of fundraising and working with the Our Lady of Fatima Shrine in Holliston and Trant’s girlfriend, Mikaela DeMaria, Almeida was able to make that wish a reality."

My FM 101.3 Wins International Public Service Award

I simply can’t say enough about my staff, our listeners fans and followers, and the Radiothon Committee as a whole for coming through with a record breaking year, it’s amazing how local radio can still make things happen” said Tom McAuliffe, owner of My FM Media, as he accepted The 2018 Simpson Award for Community Service.

“The Simpson Award is one of the highest honors a local broadcaster can receive for community service,” explained T. David Luther, Executive Director of the International Broadcasters Idea Bank (IBIB), which bestows the prestigious award annually. “This award is given annually to only one radio station in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The Greater Milford region should be proud of the world-wide recognition given to My FM 101.3.

In a media environment dominated by large corporations and bottom-line priorities, the community service efforts at this independently owned and locally programmed radio station stand out. My FM’s initiative in raising over $100,000 in one day in 2018, as part of a My FM/Milford Regional Medical Center Radiothon, topped the list of reasons the IBIB Board of Directors recommended McAuliffe for the award.

Idea Bank President Mike Hulvey added “"The Simpson Award is one of the most coveted awards in Radio Broadcasting and symbolizes what the International Broadcasters Ideabank is all about....excellence in local community broadcasting. We're proud to honor Tom McAuliffe II, and the team at My FM Media. We're in awe of their use of radio, digital and social media to raise over $100,000 in one day to benefit their local community.

“Not only does this award recognize what our station has been about in the past, but also where our station is headed for the future as we develop into a true multi-media organization. This year’s Radiothon allowed us to shine a spotlight on all the media platforms that we now have at our disposal to assist clients, organizations and causes that are near and dear to our hearts. It’s the power of local radio combined with interactive & social media that carried the day for the 2018 My FM Radiothon” McAuliffe said.

The Simpson Award for Community Service is presented by the International Broadcasters Idea Bank (IBIB), an elite organization of 100 radio broadcasters located around the world. McAuliffe accepted the award from the IBIB’s international gathering, held this year at the Cape Codder Resort in Hyannis Cape Cod.

In addition to the now-annual Radiothon to benefit the Oliva Fund for Cancer Care at Milford Regional Medical Center, My FM supports local organizations by sponsoring and participating in more than 75 community events each year, including blood drives, parades, fairs, community pride days and a large annual Senior Expo.

MYFM 101.3/WMRC-First Class Radio Receives Two Prestigious Awards From Massachusetts Broadcasters Association

MyFM 101.3 announced today that it, and its staff, are the recipients of two prestigious awards from the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association. The radio station, which serves the market between Boston, Worcester, and Providence, received the Station of the Year merit award. Also, station on-air personality and MyFM's "Mr. Everything," Ray Auger, was honored with the "Above and Beyond" award.

The Station of the Year award is presented annually by the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association to the most outstanding radio station in the Commonwealth, and is open to all of the more than 180 radio stations in the Commonwealth. The merit "Station of the Year" is awarded to a Massachusetts radio station that exemplifies overall excellence in all phases of operation.

This year's judges, members of the Alaska Broadcasters Association, cited MyFM 101.3's extraordinary growth of audience and client base. But most importantly, stating that MyFM was the epitome of localism in broadcasting, and providing exceptional service to their listeners, community officials and local organizations.

Jordan Walton, President of the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association said, "MyFM is a shining example of what a radio station, hyper-focused on their local community, can accomplish."

This is the 6th time that MyFM 101.3/WMRC-First Class Radio has won Station of the Year.

"We are humbled and honored to be recognized again by the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association," says MyFM President Tom McAuliffe. "I've been part of this community for more than 27 years and look forward to serving it for many more."

The second accolade bestowed upon MyFM, the Above and Beyond award, was granted to My FM's "Mr. Everything" Ray Auger. The Association noted Auger's combined involvement in the local music scene and his status at MyFM/WMRC to help deliver new forms of artistic culture and fundraising support to the area. By becoming involved with local organizations, he uses his relationships and broadcasting skills to serve his community in an effective and entertaining fashion. In addition to his regular duties as a radio host, producer and promotions director, and so much more, Auger serves on the board of directors for Milford TV and Milford Performing Arts Center. He also hosted numerous community fundraising events, and weekly and monthly open mics and socials.

Walton added, "Ray Auger is the driving force behind much of the local content that MyFM provides listeners in the Greater Milford area. His tireless efforts to make a difference are why his station is thriving and why he deserved to be named our "Above and Beyond" award winner in 2017."

MyFM 101.3 is the sister station of WMRC-First Class Radio, which is one of the oldest locally owned and operated broadcast stations in Massachusetts. The company was purchased in 1990 by Tom McAuliffe, Sr. who was committed to the philosophy that a strong local radio station makes a strong connection to the community. His son, Tom McAuliffe II, took over as President in 2008 making the radio station the area's first choice for local news, weather, sports, traffic and community events.

MyFM's Stuff-a-Bus - Dec 2-3

On Saturday, December 2nd at 6 AM right through Sunday, December 3rd at 12 PM, MyFM Media will be setting up camp outside of Target on Fortune Boulevard in Milford for their first annual Stuff-a-Bus event collecting toys for Toys For Tots. 

"Folks are invited to visit us on location, right outside of Target with an unwrapped toy donation for Toys For Tots", explains MyFM's "Mr. Everything" Ray Auger. "The idea is to fill a Vendetti Bus in that 30-hour period. It's a aggressive goal but I know the kind of people we are working with in this community and I know it can be done."

The idea came to Auger from past Stuff-a-Bus events he was involved with working on radio station on Cape Cod and Portsmouth, NH. Target was quick to agree to help with the location and Vendetti Bus, a good friend of MyFM, was happy to lend them the bus. In case of exceeding their goal, the MyFM and Asphalt Engineering Station Wagon will also be on hand for additional storage of toys.

"We are very excited to add this event to our myriad of community outreach programs at MyFM Media," says MyFM Media President Tom McAuliffe. "Our local community supports us in so many wonderful ways, so giving back like this is never a question."

Can't make it to the event or want to give a little more? "We are offering a fun incentive for anyone who would like to donate $200 to the Stuff-a-Bus efforts", Auger adds. "We will broadcast a Facebook Live Shopping Spree in your honor to thank you for your generous donation. Anyone interested should contact me at your convenience."
