CPR Promotional Check-Up - Sep 6, 2016
September 6, 2016
When the competition in Ft. Wayne cleaned house, Phil Becker offered as many as he could, jobs with Oasis Radio. When KMEL in San Francisco popped Chuy Gomez after 15 years, NOW allowed him to come over and say goodbye to his fans. The guy is a Bay Area legend so suddenly all of his listeners one day were like "Where'd Chuy go? It was nice to see 99.7 give him the chance to sign off. And when the morning show at US-99.5 disappeared, iHeart showed some class.
Hacking & Entering
This came up yesterday as something that could be semi-regular for a morning show. It's occasionally funny to break into the GM's office when he's out on a Friday, steal his/her stuff and give it away.
The morning show to remain nameless is going to get bored occasionally, go and crack the GM's work computer and initiate Tinder exchanges, post things like "What is this? It wasn't there when I went to bed?" on the social media and perhaps change the profile pic. Why? Why not? The same reason I used to change all of Rick Thomas's favorites on this office computer at K-Earth to incredibly obscene sites.
Something To File Away For Instagram
From Joey Tack at Hot 104.5 in Knoxville:
We're doing a promotion to give away Drake/Future tickets. Drake's album is titled "Views (from the 6)"... so we played off that and are asking people to show us their 'Views from the 865.'
To win they need to post any picture of themselves (or whatever they want) using hashtag #865Views. So far we've received 120+ submissions in just over 24 hours. Not bad!
We'll choose one winner Wednesday at 5pm, announce their name on-air and they'll need to call back within 10 min 45 seconds.
Calendars are to Christmas, what chocolate from a convenience store is for Valentines: the gift for the person you don't know what to get.
If you were going to do one, there are obviously many ways to gen sum rev off them, not the least being on-sale locations.
In the past I referenced how the little town I live in did a calendar of 12 local high-profile residents. Naked. Or seemingly naked. Creatively covered. And in Scandia, the guy who runs the liquor store is about as high up the food chain as they get so the photo of little old Adrian seemingly filling the beer display with a 24 pack across his midsection was October's image.
They raised $70,000 for a girl who had cancer. Based on my little time on the world wide web, nudity seems to work.
As witnessed by Radiowave helping with a naked calendar for the SPCA of Namibia.
