Kerri Kasem, Founder
Kasem Cares Foundation
Kerri Kasem, founder, Kasem Cares Foundation, has taken a personal tragedy and turned it into a fight to establish the rights of children to have visitation and reasonable access to an ailing parent, especially when under the care and control of an uncooperative spouse or sibling. Through her efforts, the Kasem Cares “Visitation Bill” has been passed in 20 states–either fully or in a revised version. In addition to her work as an activist, Ms. Kasem has anchored music, talk, and entertainment programs for broadcast media for more than 20 years and currently co-hosts the syndicated Red Carpet Radio and Get Mortgage Fit for Cumulus Media. She has produced and hosted shows for ABC, MTV Asia, National Lampoon®, Sprint, MTV USA and Asia, America's Funniest Home Videos, Coming Attractions, The Rub, Ultimate Knockouts, The Solomon Free Money Hour, Protecting Your Family, and more.
