WBEN/Phiadelphia's Matt Cord & Kristen Herrman To Host National Dog Show Charity Walk
May 24, 2017

WBEN (95.7 Ben FM)/Philadelphia Morning Show team of Matt Cord and Kristen Herrmann will become the faces and voices of the annual National Dog Show Charity Walk in 2017. The announcement was made by 95.7 BEN FM and the National Dog Show, which stages the annual attraction every October to raise money for important Delaware Valley charities.

The event will take place on Sunday October 15th at Wilson Farm Park in Wayne, PA.  Cord and Hermann, who launched their 6 - 9am week-day show on BEN FM in January of 2017, will promote the Dog Show Charity Walk on air and serve as the official hosts, along with Kristen’s pit bull Gloria, a frequent presence in the BEN FM studio each weekday morning.

The annual canine attraction kicks off the National Dog Show Month in Philadelphia and is one of a series of events that will lead up to the Kennel Club of Philadelphia’s National Dog Show on November 18th and 19th at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks. The National Dog Show Charity Walk is funded by the National Dog Show. Presented by Purina, the event will be broadcast on the NBC television network following the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

“We are both really excited to host the National Dog Show Charity Walk,” said Cord. “We are both avid animal lovers and big fans of rescue dogs.”

“The third member of our morning show is my doggy daughter, Gloria,” added Herrmann. “I rescued her from PAWS back in 2009, so hosting this Charity Walk was a no-brainer.”

The walk will feature multiple attractions geared toward families and their dogs for a day of fun and fundraising. Proceeds from previous years have benefited Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House (PRMH), New Leash on Life USA, PACT for Animals, Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), Morris Animal Refuge, Lilo’s Promise Animal Rescue and the Pennsylvania Veterinary Foundation.

We’re now taking the National Dog Show Charity Walk to a higher level,” said David Frei, purebred dog expert and co-host of the National Dog Show presented by Purina. ”Matt and Kristen are big players in Philadelphia. Having them on board means we are on our way to bigger and better things.
