ALEXANDRIA, Va. — In honor of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, Sept. 13-19, the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and its sponsor, Tenstreet, will host a special segment on the Dave Nemo Show on Sirius XM’s Road Dog Trucking Radio, Channel 146.
The hour-long salute to America’s often-unsung heroes — truck drivers — will begin at 9 a.m. Eastern time Tuesday, Sept. 14, and will feature a special performance by the U.S. Army Field Band’s Six-String Soldiers.
“TCA and Tenstreet are honored to show their appreciation for the more than 3.5 million professional truck drivers – essential workers – who are keeping America moving forward despite the pandemic,” shared TCA’s Senior Director of Outreach and Engagement Marli Hall. “In lieu of our yearly in-person driver appreciation events at TravelCenters of America and Petro truck stops, we’ve pivoted to a special hour-long Dave Nemo Show segment.”
Television entertainers and musicians — including “Dirty Jobs” host Mike Rowe, country-music artist Lee Greenwood, members of the Oak Ridge Boys and numerous others — will deliver special thank-you messages to truck drivers. In addition, the segment will include special announcements and recognitions from Wreaths Across American and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund.
Also during the segment, truck drivers will have the chance to win prizes such as professional tool tote bags, emergency 3-in-1 auto tools, insulated beverage tumblers and more.
