WTVD-TV meteorologist Don Schwenneker shaved his head on the air this week after the ABC affiliate signed up hundreds of potential donors at a bone marrow donor drive.

Schwenneker said that if 250 people signed up, he promised to shave his head.

The drive was organized  by WTVD-TV and Be the Match, the organization “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts represents.

WTVD management said the cause was “near and dear to the hearts of the ABC11 family.”  A staff member recently lost his son to leukemia.
