James's Warr;ors

This week on In Touch, we speak with Donna Thomas of James’s Warr;ors. May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and we talk about how Donna uses her platform to spread mental health awareness to schools and the community. Donna recounts her story losing her son James, and how she is using her story to save lives. 

We invite you to join us and listen to a previously recorded conversation between Donna and myself here on In Touch. 


This has been this week’s edition of IN TOUCH, the award-winning public affairs and issues program that runs across Townsquare Media of the Hudson Valley radio stations. We want to give a big thank you to Donna Thomas! For more on James’s Warr;ors, visit https://www.jamesswarriors.org/ 

Townsquare Spotlights

Because of the awesome success of In Touch over the last year, we are expanding! We are launching a new spin-off series under the In Touch umbrella called Townsquare Spotlights. These Spotlights branch out from the typical Hudson Valley programming and focus on amazing celebrities and leaders across the country who are making an impact in pop culture. You can check out our latest spotlights with Billboard-charting musician AJ Croce, Hollywood icon Clint Howard, and Golden Globe Nominated Actress Mel Harris wherever you enjoy In Touch. 


Thank you for all the kind words shared in regard to In Touch officially being awarded the 2023 New York State Broadcasters Association Award for “Outstanding Public Affairs Program or Series,” as part of the 57th Annual Excellence in Broadcasting Awards. This recognition would not be possible without the incredible team here at Townsquare, all our phenomenal guests that we learn from and grow with every single week, and of course you, the listener! Whether you’ve been listening for a while, or you just found us, thank you for taking part in the conversation and staying In Touch with what’s going on in the Hudson Valley. Hopefully, real soon, we should be hearing the results of 2024's NYSBA awards!

Whether you’ve been listening for a while or you have just joined us, thank you! You can find In Touch episodes new and old on your favorite streaming services like Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher and more! That, and listen On Demand with your Townsquare Radio Station Mobile App. Of course, you can still find all articles and audio under the In Touch Tab on this radio station’s app and website.
