Meridian, Miss. A group of Meridian radio stations hosted the Battle for the Golden Microphone to help battle a blood shortage.
The Radio People sponsored the 2nd Annual Radio Gives Blood Drive Thursday at the Northeast Conference Center.
On-air personalities challenged listeners to come support them at the drive.
